My dear Cousin Hay
I should have written you long ago when Watsons Doctor came. Have been stupid with work. I'm sorry to see that Mr. [Howie?] is to leave us so soon. He was a few weeks at the house, then tried batchelor hall. Made a failure of housekeeping. Gave up hope of being a fruitraiser & went to a Martinez hotel, where he has been waiting for a [remittance?]. The cold part of winter is over, Almond & Apricot trees in bloom, still he means to try Denver, Colorado. He is looking pretty well, at present.
I hope to get another book out next fall.
With cordial regards for all the family
I am ever Yours
