Tuesday morning Jan. 27, 1880.
A glad Welcome Home to you! — though I have but few minutes in which to say it, and you are not yet in clear sight but it is the best I can do. Only just now, looking over a stray copy of Sundays Call, I found your name in the “Oregon’s” passenger list, but there was nothing of it in the Bulletin. Mother is still too sick for father to leave her, so we can not go to meet
you, but you do not need that to assure you how glad we are of your coming. I send you the trunk key as you may want it before coming here. Send a Telegram so we can meet you at the Martinez train. The 3 and 4 o’clock trains are still running. In great haste for the express has left, and there is only this 11 o’clock mail a day. With the hope of seeing your face in a little while,
