Dear Papa -

This is another beautiful warm day and we are all right. Im feeling fine for Ive got completely rested up now.
The oranges and chinese nuts etc that came in the boxes, are good. Mary has enjoyed the 'nuts' and candy. The apricots are fine. I have given them to Mrs Funk to cook for me. She is going to make pies.
Its' too nice outdoors to stay in the shanty even with the door open. Im going to ride, So good-bye for today.

Always yours
