Yes, the two grandchildren are interesting little fellows and it is a great pleasure to see them, although I have not been stopping at the ranch for any longer than a few weeks at a time all winter and spring.I am pretty well and find that I can write as well as ever and am trying to get off as much as possible of work that has been neglected.I am glad Joanna is getting a change from that marshy Port Norfolk with her interesting children. I trust that the health of all the family will be restored in your dry breezy air.With all good wishes, dear Mary, and rejoicing in your health, and the welfare of all the Hands, I am,Ever affectionately your brother,[ILLEGIBLE]
