I had adopted you previously — or I might have been afraid to have done so now.All my life have I wished to go on the tramps in which you have taken me in your books, but could not, so you can realize some what the satisfaction your writings have given me - thank you.I have a nice large flock of quail - we counted 108 the last rainy day. feeding under the live oak in front of our door. They stay in our trees all the time -, and are very much at home here -I trust you are well and will remain so - was sorry to know you had such a cold - take care of
