October 8th 1905
Dear Papa -
Your letter reached us this morning and we were both glad to hear that everything was all right at home and that you had reached our little valley safely. We are getting along finely here and I am eating sleeping and feeling well. The good weather keeps up and I enjoy it so. This morning Wanda and Miss Roberts rode over to those two mesas west of Adamana and found it wonderfully interesting country. This morning four nice tourists came on No. 1 and had a beautiful dear day out in the forests.
Marion is almost well now and running around the yard with his rope trying to catch the chickens and Jimmy dog. The little "Prince" is four months old today and is cutting a tooth. Everyone is as well as usual. Wanda has broken her glasses so cannot write. I will write every day.
With love to Aunt Margaret and May.
Your loving daughter
