I [am] getting nearer to you, but still it is a long way home. I hope you are well and not too lonesome, and that the oat crop and peach crop are good and abundant.
Here is a pretty Kalmia I picked yesterday, and a bunch of gentians. I sailed the Yellowstone lake yesterday. I must run. The stage is ready. Goodbye.
