Miss Weir
Dear friend
you will think me long
in answering your letter
We are all pretty well
I was waiting until
we would know whither
we could get at the time
we spoke about. John &
James were to the agent
and he could not tell
decidedly until tomorrow
if we could get a trip they
[torn] crowded so the first &
second cabins John said
he wanted 3 second cabin
passages The city of California
one of the safest & finest on
record I thought I would
write and let you know
this & I will write you again
when the [they?] hear for shure
[sure?] tomorrow. They told me
to drop you a few lines to let you
know this. What a time they have
left out when you's come in
John has moved to a lovely
place on Baldwin Ave
We were out there yesterday
It is 3 blocks above Nicks I
was to day there - a card when
you's came in They are not
quite settled yet. James
says he is so glad that lady
Mrs McKinzie [McKenzie?] is gone
there will just be ourselves 3
I did not care much for her.
Lizzie says when you's come
in she has a mash for you's
Tell Miss Harrison The [they?]
would have liked terrible well
to went out on the excursion
but could not. Lizzie says she
told Miss Harrison she was
going out when she got married
I must stop My eyes pain
me so looking at the paper
I cant hardly write excuse
this scribble John says [will?]
be at the Twelth at home
this year I will write as
soon as I get more news James
said he'll be up Wednesday
we'll know for sure then
Remember me to all Also
Miss Harrison & Yourself
I remain your friend
M. Savage

I wonder
if the Dr
could give
us anything
would keep
us from being
sea sick so
Good bye
