I think you have probably heard from Anna that Mr. Dawes is at present in the Indian Territory, as the head of a Commission to treat with the Indians, and that she has accompanied him there. They went about the first of January, and will be away for some weeks more. Mr. Dawes was not very well when he went away from the effects of the Grip, but I hear that the milder climate has been very good for him. My son and I, are living very quietly at home, and enjoying the rest; though

Shall not you come East again before very long? We shall want to see you here again - and behold the shining of your countenance.

We have all been at home together since Father and I came back from the Indian Territory in April, and nothing special has happened to us since the Golden Wedding. I wish you might have been here for that, it was so very pleasant and so delightful an occasion. I suppose Father
