Daggett, Cal.Jan 15-Dear PapaI just got your letter saying you might be with us Sunday. I hope you can come. We are having such glorious weather I feel that you would be better here than up in that fog. You didn't say how you were. I'm glad the fence is going up. Its a comfort to know things are looking well at home even if I cant be there. Wanda said in her last letter that [they?] were going to ship my horse "early next week". Im so glad.This is great air here, and a great country. In the last eight days I have gained five "perfectly good" pounds. Now what do you think of that? That makes ten04027 pounds altogether that I have added to myself since I've been in the desert. I cough very little now, and the pain in my sides is nearly gone Im all right.Miss Brodt is going to the post office now, so good-bye. I hope you'll be here by Sunday.Lovingly yoursHelen04027
