My darlings Wanda & Helen.

I hope you had a fine ride into the mountains & that all your trip will be a rich & happy one. Dont try to cross any deep streams.
I had a glorious time with the President Camped out alone with him 3 nights - In the Sequoia Grove, back of Glacier Point. & at foot of Yosemite near Bridal Veil. Heaven bless you my darlings. Goodbye.

Your affectionate father
