Daggett May 30

Dear Papa -

I wrote the enclosed letter about a week ago and thought you had received it but Helen put it away and forgot to mail it. She only found it this morning.
It was very hot yesterday but is windy again today
Helen is feeling fine and enjoying the hot wether.
I am well again and expect to be home about the 10th of June. I am having a good time down here in spite of the heat and sand and Helen and I have had some fine horseback rides but I am getting pretty anxious to get back to my mud house and get my baby home again.





Daggett, Calif.
