Darlings Helen & Wanda

We were very glad to get your letters assuring us you were well & happy & telling us about your trip to Mono & Mt Dana etc You should also climb Mt Gibbs if you have time & make notes on the plants. also the big gray broad topped Mammoth Mountain next to Mono Pass on the south But don't go through the brushy snaky Tuolumne Canon. & don't go up Mt Ritter on account of the miles of ice you would have to travel over. We are all well Heaven bless you darlings
