Bridge carrying the roadway to Mt. Rubidoux.  The charm and hospitality of this city is renowned.  A year around mecca for tourists, no place could be more typical of the real California.


Dear Johnnie, We arrived yesterday afternoon.  I was sick all the way -- still am, but hope to be better soon.  The children and grandchildren are all well and send their love.  Wish you were here with us.  Flowers blooming in their yard & their tree so pretty.  Hope you are all right.

Love, E.M.

Thanksgiving Greetings

Dear little niece,

How are you & Ruth getting along?  What are you going to do Thanksgiving?  I would just give anything to see you all.  Glen & Gladys are both about as fat as pigs & mean as they can be.  Tell mamma I will write to her before long.  you must write to me and let me see you your can write.  Your loving Aunt Rita.


The river affords excellent fishing for salmon, steelhead and cutthroat trout.  It is closed to commercial fishing.  The Nestucca is one of the many beautiful rivers along the Oregon Coast Highway.


Today I feel much better.  The inflamation is letting up in my eyes and ears.  We are both okay otherwise.

Love, Mom & Dad
