Daggett, Sept. 12 - 08

Dear Papa

I got your first letter from home yesterday. If you are not needed there now why dont you come down here, and we can have a good visit and talk over what you want to do this winter. The weather is fine here, Im sure you would enjoy it. As for what I want, you can bring some money when you come, and if you can, we'd like a Goldberg box - Ill send you the list of things I want in it tomorrow.


Tom sends me fruit right along so Im well supplied that way. Ill write again tomorrow.

Lovingly yours




Daggett [Calif.]
