daughter spend three years in the desert and fully regained her health, and that you could direst me where to go. It may not prove necessary to make a change but I wish to be prepared to go at once, if it is thought best for me to leave Pasadena.If you are in Pasadena now, or any time in the next few weeks, I would like to ask you personally more questions about the surroundings and accommodations to be found at Daggett or any other place you would recommend.I would not trouble you if Mr Burroughs had not seriously advised the desert and referred me to you for information.I will be very grateful for any help you can give me as to conditions there.Sincerely yours,Mary Beal
