[3]I never go out anymore to see my friends, although I ride out every day when I can, just run over to Tropico where my sister lives. Soon my sister-in-law will come to California for a visit, and I am looking forward with pleasure to it. She will be a comfort to me helping me to live through this awful loneliness. Just imagine Mr. Muir what this means to me to be so absolutely alone. All summer I have been here prefering it however to being with people who did not interest me. You do not say anything about your Alaska trip. Hope you enjoyed it, but that goes without saying, as you[4]always are in your native element when visiting such interesting places and heartily enjoy and appreciate them. Good-bye. Soon I will see Helen and her dear ones, and hope to find them well. With kindest remembrance I am as ever your sincere friendFay H. Sellers05276
