November 15 1908
Dear Papa -
I received your two last letters inclosing clippings to cheer me up, and enjoyed them all. I am steadily gaining and keep comfortable and happy. I dress so I never feel any chill. The weather has been wonderful for November. I am glad you have found someone to typewrite for you. I suppose you both board at Wanda's part of the time.
If you can get us two more boxes of grapes we'd be glad to have them. The two Van Dykes enjoyed their boxful you sent last and seemed pleased at mention of another one. Remember they are 85 cents apiece. All the good people of the ranch want me to remember them to you.
How are the chrysanthemums in my yard - are there any yellow ones worth sending?
