Sarah [Muir Galloway]
with us I shall hope to hear that you keep on improving until in your usual health again. The weather now is bright and sunshiny. making it a pleasure to be out of doors. I hope Wanda and her family are well, I have not heard from her for some time.Very lately I had a letter from Joanna, they are very much with their home and the people at Ginter Park. She tells me that her youngest daughter Bernice will be married next month, to a man she has been acquainted with since they were children in Philadelphia He has a large farm not far from the city I think. Likely you will have heard too. The day was not given when she wrote, so we will hear again. We hear by letters from Anna and Marjorie of the great flood from the Los Angeles river that has done so much damage after the heavy rains, The G[illegible]inger cousins have had a big loss. Their [barns] [illegible]ooder House the fence and even their eucalyptus grove all swept down the river
