My dear Mary;
Never mind my judgement on your foolish danger risk at Port Costa. that's past. Be wiser in future. We were all glad to hear you found your family well & that you would be able to give time to art. Don't copy. Go direct to nature. With best wishes for the new Year
I am ever Your affectionate brother
