I wish you could have been here tonight to see what happened to your box of clothing. Jackie came after school - The suit didn't fit him but he took what did fit and some of the smaller things that his mother could fix for his little sister - Then tonight 5 little boys just happened in as if their intuitions and eagerness made them know the box was here - Well they had a wonderful time and so did I - The youngest was 10 - The oldest 14 - They tried things on and looked in the mirror at themselves - They were very positive abo about having a reasonably fair division - You would have laughed as I did and they did - It was amusing and touching at the same time - Finally some one had taken it all but the two small orange ties and the big old shoes - The second youngest picked up the big old shoes and asked if he could take them to his grandfather - So they were gone -
My friend Edward just fitted into the suit - and as he never had a suit before except levis - he was pretty pleased with himself - wearing also the purple shirt - As you probably know Doris left Jan. 12 with Mary Callery - driving . Chino was not well from the time we returned from visiting you and died soon after they left. Maybe he wouldn't have died if l had kept him at home and nursed him myself - I was really sad about I - Emelia left me before Xmas - she had just become impossible - I was glad to have her go - It was almost as if she had gotten a little odd in her mind - The new person I have is better in many ways - she can drive to town for our errands which is very good - We get on very well - It has been very pleasant to finally be alone - I have been able to get to work in a way that I just couldn't with Doris here - I don't know why I am that way but I am - I've been painting the bare trees and mesa out my
window. My working had been haphazard for so long that it has been oddly difficult to settle down to it regularly again - But it is by far the most satisfactory thing I can think of doing. Couldn't you come up for a while? The days now are warm and lovely - When the wind does not blow - The nights are cold - Maybe you would like to come for Easter - Come some time with the spring - if you can. Thanks - and
my love to you
