Dear Papa -
This is another perfect sunny day on this desert of mine, and the larks are singing. Im feeling cheerful as ever.
Yesterday I received a charming and kindly letter from Mrs Bailey, and I have just answered it. It is so good of all the Merriams to take the kind interest in me they do.
As you are coming here sometime this week, this is probably the last letter that will have time to reach you before you start. Everything goes well here, and I am feeling fine. I am enjoying the Sierra Club magazine you sent me.
Always yours lovingly
