Dear Papa.

Your letter and the deeds came this morning.
I m tremendously thankful that the business with Charlie is over with and settled. May we never have any more with him.
You speak of almond blossoms and spring weather: I had forgotten that this was the time for them but it made me awfully homesick to think of them. Here we are having another sand storm. Such a bad one that it is hard even to see the coal bunkers. However Helen seems to feel pretty well so I guess we can stand it. But I think it would make even a sait cross.I have a toothache besides so I m not very amiable
Every thing else is about as usual When are you coming back? Soon I hope Its too bad that you can't get the inheritance tax settled this time but I suppose there is no hurry about it.


Have you heard anything more about selling the city lots?
The freight bill for the Goldberg box has come and we will give the box itself a cordial welcome
