Dear Lon, Suppose you are still collecting churches but think I sent you one of these last year. So sorry you are keeping company with the ground hog. He is out down here. Ella and I visited several hotels on the coast yesterday seeing about taking [?] gifts to the different places later. It was a glorious day. had to carry my wrap. I know this grand sunshine would take away all your aches and give you new life. Hope Martha will soon be able to come. Also Ulve Fain. Thanks for the nice letter. Much love Ellenor [sic]
