We have been out at sea the best part of the day and in pretty choppy weather but I have not been the least bit sea sick. Will be on this boar "Hermosa" for about two days. Will be back to Los Angeles Sat. when I will take a boat to San Diego, Calif. from San Diego I will go over in Old Mexico. Will be back in Los Angeles some time next week. Then to Frisco and then norht, Yest. I went out to Mt. Lowe. I know you would have liked it. The last 4 or five mile of the trip we had to make on burros. There was one big fat woman in the crowd and she had to ride a mule and I tell you that poor mule almost gave out before we reached the summit. Went to the opera last night. Tell you I am almost eating myself sick, fruit & everything It's so cheap. Got you[r] letter of 2&3 here at Los last night. Sorry to hear of Sallie [Dick?] Can't think of more to write so will ring off. Hope you are all O.K.
