Martinez, Jan. 17, 1908

Darling Helen,

I suppose you pony is at Daggett ere this & you are on him jumping & dodging larrea bushes. Tom shipped him 2 days ago without saying a word to me If you find all right I'll be glad, for he was in a sad way here for want of exercise.
Your fence is almost finished. It looks fine Probably the gates will be hung tomorrow if rain allows
Keep warm a single chill may make all our pains of no effect.

Ever your lov[er?]
