Dear Sister, Mary,

I'm glad to hear that you are well & prosperous & get your welcome. I was away more than a year & of course though seeing & learning a lot of things in line of my studies I was very glad to get home. I found everybody about as usual Maggie & Sarah are better than when I left a year ago. So are David & Ette. Helen & Wanda are away in the Sierra above Yosemite for five or six weeks. While I am trying to answer 2 or 300 letters accumulated in my absence. With love to all your family I am ever affectionately your brother
