My dear Papa,
When are you coming home? I hope it will be soon for it seems as if it was a long time since you were here. I hope you are well and that you had a pleasant Easter. I will be very glad indeed to have a letter from you, for we have not heard yet. I am learning a little piece which begins, “Wee, modest, crimson –
tipped flower, Thou’s met me in an evil hour”; and which I think is pretty. Do you like it? Aunt Margaret is not very well, but is better than she was. Cousin Anna and Jessie expect to start home next week. Miss Graydon, Helen and I went over to the other place, and had a pleasant little visit. I can not write a long letter, because Mamma is ready to start to Martinez.
With much love,
1892 Apr 18
