This is a beautiful spot - although at present it is covered with snow but a few of us are having a short respite from out duties and I want to greet you for P's & St J's days, my precious sisters. I trust you have kept well during these weeks. This p.m. we may visit the forest service and see where they make parachutes for the "smoke jumpers." Each morning we've had a lovely walk in the snow having brought our galoshes with us - it's fun. God love you - always your own Lecture Week!
