Daggett, Sept 7 - 08Dear Papa -I havent heard from you yet but look for another letter today. All goes well here with us. Im feeling better every day and am also growing younger. The weather has been grand, till last night. A rain came up about 2'00 but I woke at once and moved inside, and this morning I think the04273storm is over. This rain is fine for the grain that has just been planted. Tom has kept me well supplied with fine fruit - I got another box of pears - splendid ones, last week.Write when you can find time.Always lovingly yoursHelen04273
