Daggett, Cal. July 18 - 08

Dear Papa

All goes well here and I am feeling fine - happy as ever. It is not quite so hot today but still I am about the only one who feels comfortable. A few days ago we had a tiny thunder sprinkle - the thunder was grand but there wasnt enough rain to show on the sand. My two cats are well and have lots of fun playing together.
I saw about that poor girl who fell and lost her life. Did you know her? There was only a short piece in the Times about it.
I look for another letter from you this afternoon.

Always lovingly yours




Daggett, Calif.
