[4]all packed into the little place. I wish it were not quite so small. The weather is cold and foggy--real San Francisco summertime!I'm glad you miss me out of the southern country. It seems strange to me to think the house down there is shut up and empty, and the faithful Agnes gone and only Willrek on guard outside.I think you will be very wise to have a change from "[ward?] work" to the open country. If you think of going to Alaska as late as next month, would you think of taking Ellie and Maude with you? I have not mentioned it to either[5]3 of them, but I am sure it would do them good and I believe you would like to have their company. Maude is not going to close our house till next month.Yes--do write--some magazine articles on the interesting subjects you wrote in your letter.Ever affectionately yoursKatharine Hooker05221
