My dear Gus,
We have been
here a little over two weeks,
it has been very pleasant for
us, but the weather is now
getting too cool to be comfortable,
as it is probably very warm with
you, it may be of interest to
know that we had frost on
the hills last night & night
before last.
Yesterday was Nelly’s
