Kenneth and Marjorie and do for them while busy and in school for a time. I have heard that Helen and family have returned to Daggett, and that all are well and I am glad of that. I hope that you keep well while you are so busy. I was not sure whether you would have gone to the mountains for your summer change.
We have had a beautiful summer and Pacific Grove has had a busy season.

My dear brother John:-

The day before yesterday I received a newspaper from Maggie Lunam with the notice of the death of our cousin Mrs Lunam. You also will have heard. I have a letter from Maggie written July 4th acknowledging my letter of April. She said her mother was loosing strength and no prospect of her being able to be up this



summer. She was pleased with everything and not suffering. sleeping a great part of the time. she seems to have been just worn out and was in her 90th year.
The last I heard of you was that you were still in the Valley and busy writing. and that all were in usual health. I had a letter from Mary very lately. She was asking about you. she and her family were all in good health. I also had letters from Joanna and Bernice


They too were well. The girls had been away on their summer vacation and had a fine time. Ethel and Bessie have good positions in the same office and Bernice helps her mother at home. Marjorie is home from her work at P[illegible] and will start to-morrow for Los Angeles and will attend the normal school. Anna who has been making a stay with Mrs Foster and her cousins the Guidinger family, for some time returned about two weeks ago. She too will return so that she can be with
