Dear Brother John:-
Your beautiful book, "Yosemite" came yesterday and I hasten to thank you for it. I thought first that I would wait to read it so I could express myself more inteligently, but I am so proud of it. I cannot wait to say how much I appreciate it. The artistic binding, and
and your own inscription to me, make it all the more valuable.
The winter is wearing away and we have had scarcely any cold weather, much less even than usual in Virginia but I understand California has had unusual cold and frost. I rec'd a leter from a dear friend in San Diego
this morning, telling how the frost had blighted vegetation there.
We are all continuing better in health than formerly, for which we are very grateful. Ethel and Bessie are in the same office, Ethel bookkeeping as usual and Bessie mistress of the stenography, and type writing. Bernice and myself take charge of the house
