Darling Helen.

I was greatly relieved today by your letter just as I was about to telegraph for news.
You should have a servant to attend you all the time get one at any cost and I'll gladly pay her wages. This will be a great relief and pleasure to me.
Let me know when you want anything. You have not yet acknowledged receipt of another large box of muscats with a bunch of flowers in a corner of it. shipped a day or two before the Goldberg stuff Oct. 15. Dont know the name of your dream wife unless you mean Hetch Hetchy. Am fairly well

Devotedly Your father
