[3]Thomas has promised to visit me this week as she is lonely and I was coming right over to get you too to bear us company. You can fancy my dismay to find you had been here and gone. Whither now? There are surely no more worlds to conquer. If you hear of some rare chance for me to rent a cabin in a picturesque spot not too high and wild, let me know, Donald's pictures are really good and he has been stocking the [illegible] museum full of [snakes?]. He has gained flesh for the first time in the three years of his illness. I feel so much encouraged. Do let me hear if you are coming back and if you are in town [illegible] in to see Donald, telephone first. He will be there a week anyway.With sincere affectionAnna R. DickeySan Rafael Heights
