In full: "My dear Mr. Allen:/Your letter of November 4th is at hand and Mrs. Crane and myself were indeed glad to hear from you and to know that you are still in the land of the living, and are enjoying life. We have been out here now for about a month and are delighted with the climate. I am much better of my diabetes but am troubled a good deal with neuritis. I hope to get over it. You and Mrs. Allen had better come out to California this winter and get some ozone. Mrs. Crane joins me in sending most affectionate regards to both of you. Sincerely,".
