My Dear Daisy
Ore dear than this scraggy pen can possibly tell you =I think of you, love you & pray for you night & morning=but my eyes will let me do very little in the way of writing and this hot weather continues with variations as these "hot, hotter hottentotist" quite uses up or seems to all the grey matter at my command.
I hope you are all well - it seems an age since hearing from you but do not write till the spirit

Really moves you. I mean by this do not try when it is not an actual pleasure-Twice I have lost, ort seem to have lost the enclosed card which I promised to return & the fact troubled me some- How is Miss Ethel Martin & where is also _.S. Did Miss M remain East studying art as long as she intended or get homesick for Cal & her people? We hoped she would look in on us in the glad summer time - & were sorry to have missed seeing her- give our love to her, when you see her.
Tea-time & I must set the table!
With a great deal of love to you all from Evie & me, & hoping that my sight will improve with cooler weather - as ever
and always, affectionately yours
E.F.M.

P.S.
Saturday Morning the day after the setting of the table & have I written you that Edith has a little son?
She I delighted with her baby wishes we could see it-You remember perhaps than she was very fond of pets.
Lovingly
Aunt Lib
