Last night I went to sleep thinking cheerfully of the twins5 and surely should have had pleasant dreams. But not so at all—I dreamed that Margaret was eaten by a lion! We all saw her sitting in a lion's cage in a circus parade, and felt very fond of her, and after the cage passed word travelled back through the crowd that the lion had eaten her! And her grandmother6 & grandfather Cather7 both fainted and had to be carried out of the crowd, and then I wakened up.
Tell them I went right up to Mrs.
Austin's8 house to work that morning as soon as you left, and
found my Bishop9 there waiting for me. I have
worked every day
suce since, then. Tony10 is still in the hospital with a high
temperature, and his wife11 is
terrified. I talked to her by LA FONDA
Santa Fe, New Mexico
FRED HARVEY, MANAGEMENTlong distance yesterday. I
[illegible] shall go back to my
little house in Taos12 about July 4
or 5, as Mabel has a housekeeper there in her absence and a friend I like
from New York13 is coming there at
that date. I am so glad you [illegible] did go home by way of Taos. Maybe I'll
have a little house there someday, where the children can visit me. I hope
you and Meta14 and Elsie15 enjoyed your stay here one half as much as I did, and I do
wish I could see you all and the children soon again. I love your little
girls very dearly, all three of them.
No sign of Douglass16!
Ask the twins and Virginia17 to write me, and tell me what they like best down here.Mr. R. C. Cather1 1225 Center Avenue Casper3 Wyoming SANTA FE N. MEX.2 JUN 27 1926 9 AM
