Dear Papa -

This is a cold windy day and I am staying close by the fire. The mountains to the South and East are beautifully snowy and make a grand show whenever the sun comes out from the clouds. It tried to snow a little here this morning, but Mr Van Dyke thinks this is just the end of a storm somewhere else. We are

warm and comfortable here in the shanty. And I am perfectly warm every night no matter how hard the wind blows. I am well and cheerful, and constantly careful.
Keennie is getting fat, and like my horse is in good condition.
The Van Dykes are well. So is Miss Brodt. I have been thinking that I wont need her when her month is up, but you will be here before that so I can talk it over. How are things getting along and when are you coming

Lovingly yours Helen
