[2]journey very much. I visited Buffalo, friends up in Canada then back to Philadelphia, Atlantic City, and last but not least New York City where I was happy indeed for it is like home yet altho' so many old friends are gone, as are the dear huband and son with whom I used to enjoy so much, I had my dear daughter in law with me. and met so many who were connected with my former life in New York and there is so much of interest in that metropolis as[3]I really found it I dreaded leaving it all and coming way across to my lonely home here. But Nature in California is kinder to one as age comes on. and the blood chills, there are many attractions in this land of so much sunshine, and there are kind hearts every where. When one has lived to see their loved ones pass over into the "better land", the only thing left to comfort is the pleasure to be found in books and the joys wh. are common to every one
