Home, Nov. 6, 1914,Dear Papa:-I was so glad to receive your letter saying you would come as soon as you had all your book manuscript ready to correct. The weather keeps fine here and I know you would enjoy it. The cottonwoods are still green as there has been no frost to turn them yellow.We are all well, the little boys growing and lively. Baby is more adorable than ever.Send grapes or quinces or both any time you want to and we will take care of them. All the plants you sent are well rooted now and some are budding out.Lovingly as alwaysHelen05878
