Dear Father1:

I walked out the Peughtown3 road4 this morning and went all over the Cookes field hunting for the gum tree that used to be so beautiful in the fall. It was not to be found, but there were as many briars and berry-bushes as ever. It has rained for five days in succession, but I have been out most of the time.
