Dear Son Edson:

We are glad to hear that you will be with us soon. Willie may go to Mountain View Sunday morning to meet you. We shall expect to see you here Monday. I shall be very pleased to confer with you regarding many things. I am having quite good health now, and we can talk over many matters. I hope this may be to the advantage of us all. 22LtMs, Lt 110, 1907, par. 1

Your letters have given the impression that your visit with us would be very short, but I entreat of you to make no appointments for the future that will interfere with your spending some time with us. 22LtMs, Lt 110, 1907, par. 2

For some weeks we have been planning to visit Southern California, but various matters, important and urgent, have urged themselves upon us, and we could not go. And we did not want to go South until after your visit. I have wanted to be in a favorable position to spend considerable time with you when you come. I have abundance of room in my house and we can make you comfortable. I had hoped that Emma would come with you, and was sorry to hear that her health was not such as to make her coming advisable. 22LtMs, Lt 110, 1907, par. 3

Your mother. 22LtMs, Lt 110, 1907, par. 4
