[2]victim of any suffering, and I shall hope to soon hear of your recovery to perfect health. I was glad to get a letter from Mrs. Funk telling me of their sucesful and happy life on the desert One surely can there get pure air and freedom from the conventionality and restrains of wearisome [illegible] existence." I have just come from two hours spent on the[3]beautiful golf fields here, where one overlooks the Iowa river and a rolling country; wooded and not unlike the Berkshires. A beautiful sky with light drifting clouds; invigorating air; good exercise and good company - was all that was needed to take the "kinks" out of the [illegible] story - and put me in a more cheerful mood for work.I spent the winter in an attractive Florida Village — Winter park, and had [a?] [note?] from John Burroughs while he was in Florida but was sorry not to see him.[6]my pleasant memories of the days we spent at [illegible] Canon [diacritic]
