May's Feb. 27/06

Darlings I hope you have come through your first sandstorm un[illegible]. I don't wonder you had storms of some kind, for on the way home I encountered almost every sort of weather- wind, snow, rain serene sunshine heat & cold etc Your letter came yesterday & I'll be uneasy until I hear that Helen is not seriously hurt by the close air of the bedroom, made so to keep out sand.
I sent a goldberg box soon as I got home, & yesterday a box of oranges the best [Sun?] could find after strict orders to taste every tree for the sweetest Don't bother about the Baumgart deeds only watch chance when Clark id down
Let me know what you want me to bring ere long for I may return in haste should I hear of more sand winds All here about as usual. The fruit trees in fall bloom & grass 6 inches high - Ever your lover
