[2]vacation and about once a week Morris goes home to see if there is any mail, and to water the lawn and garden.The express man brought the peaches over to Griffin Avenue all right, but found no one at home, so left a notice asking us to call for a box of fruit.Several days afterward the notice was found in the door and Morris went as soon as possible to the office in town and brought the peaches down. They were in very good condition and we have enjoyed them very much, as also have a number of other people in the house here who were presented with some of the beauties. It was very kind of you to remember us in such a delightful way.
