Dear Margt. & Sarah
Excuse me for being so long in writing to you after received such kind interesting letters from both of you – But to think of you both being in Cal – seems wonderful indeed. How thankful I am that you have got to your journey end in safty. I expect you would be frightened some what when the accident to the train occurred – how very fortunate it was that no one was hurt
and now you both feel that you have got to the promised land – as every thing grows more luxuriantly than we can imagine here I hope you have both got well rested by this time – and I think you will be the better for this visit for the rest of your life time How fortunate it is that you have each good reliable house keepers to attend to home affairs-while you are absent – After this long trip you will surely not think any thing of coming to Portage at times – All are as well as usual – I hope to hear from you soon – with love to all
