Dear Friend John
We arrived here yesterday forenoon and are now with my cousin Mrs Anna Cotton Everything has gone very well with us excepting my condition I got along with the heat of Winnipeg and the cold of the mountains but as soon as I got into the balmy moist air of the Pacific I began to take cold it was bad Had to lie a bed over half a day on account of it In two or three days I improved and then took on the most annoying and persistent [illegible]es of my life and took another severer cold on top of it so I am here now playing the envalid in sider to recover from both Have not yet made much progress but am hopeful of being better in a few days. Whether I shall compplete my visit in Frisco before going to your home or not I am uncertain At any rate you will hear from me again in a few days My little physical troubles did not hinder us from enjoying our journey most thoroughly particularly as far down as Portland.
Hoping soon to see you I remain as ever yours W. H. Trout
