I write to thank you for your kindness in sending a likeness of your two dear children to me_ I trust they will both be spared to be a joy and comfort to you all
This summer has passed very pleasantly with me, as four of my Daughters were at home with me at one time which is a rare occurance.
Since Anne has got 06159
well rested, she seesm to be very well, her sojourn with you, has been of much benefit to her health
I expect John is again at home. I hope his trip has proved very beneficial in every point of view
Mary and Joanna has both returned to their homes, we miss them and the children very much indeed
We have had a very good garden this summer we have nearly all kinds of common vegetables, and a very good supply of grapes_
Since Annie came home we have had a good deal of cold and rainy weather but no frost of any consequence
I shall hope to have a letter from California before very long_
Yesterday was [Johannie?] Muir's birthday and his sister 'Annie' and I went out to the cemetery and laid fresh flowers upon his resting place and also upon their Mother's
With much love to all Affectionately Mother
