Mrs. L. Strentzel
[in margin: 805] 00797 Alhambra June 18th, 1878.Dear Friend. I suppose you are now preparing to leave for your long summer journey over the mountains and the desert. But why do you go away and risk your life among those murderous Indians when you might just as well remain at home in peace and comfort with your many friends. At least wait awhile until there is good prospect of the war troubles being ended.
Those cars I am sorry to say are not yet running to Oakland. A fresh slide of earth has fallen in the tunnel which will delay the completion of the work several days longer. We hope to hear from you again before you leave, and shall be glad if you will sometimes write to us while you are gone. Yours truly, Mrs. L. Strentzel.
1878 Jun 18
