8things generally. I think I would feel that you were safer in Alaska or some cold country. Still, if you must follow your fate, of course you will, and as you have said, we can trust God to take care of you wherever you go.My mother and Caslon wish to be remembered to you, and so does my husband. He was busy and did not meet you, but we have your photograph and he has heard a great deal about you of course, and enjoys your books.I have followed your instructions I guess, for9this is quite a long letter, but I did not realize there was so much of it until just now. I hope to have one from you before you leave New York, even if it is very short.If Mrs. Hooker should stay in Los Angeles at the old home, perhaps you will come back to us some time and write more books. In the meantime I send you all the love and happy remembrances and good wishes that you can possibly find room for.Your sincere friend,Henrietta ThompsonMrs. Morris Thompson3100 No. Griffin Ave.Los Angeles, California05047
