will be home in time to see Marjorie graduate from the High School here as that will be a little later.
I hope Wanda and Helen are well with their families. You will see all of these fine little boys now and again and I am sure will enjoy them. remember me to them all when you see them.

Love and best wishes from Sarah.

Dear brother John:-

I suppse you are as busy writing as ever. I have just been reading an article about yourself and John Burroughs,and showing you both sitting in a fine shady place having a good talk. The article was telling how John Burroughs celebrated his 78th birthday and that you were one of the company, also something of of the life work of each one of you which was very interesting. Not many



days ago I was also reading in the Pacific Grove paper of the new honors bestowed upon John Swett and John Muir. I think you will soon have all of the honors there are to give. I hope you keep well, for I am sure it cannot be easy work writing so steadily through the days and the years even if it is work you enjoy.
This is the season when things look about their best here there is such a wealth of blossom in


the garden. The wild flowers have not been plentiful this year as we have had so little rain.
Those of our family that we have heard from were all in usual health. Ette has not been very well lately but keeps about and David is always ready to help.
Anna will soon be going to Los Angeles to attend the Graduating exercise at the school where Kenneth has been studying, as he will be one of the graduates. She
