Gracias muchos for your last letter! I have been very busy this Winter, curing very many patients! Just a week ago or so Anders Larson was attacked by a bear! He received several cuts and bruises but nothing fatal. He is now all better and working around the farm as before. How was your Navidad? Juan was the unfortunate one to get coals in his shoes this year. He was very unhappy. I received a new skirt and a candle extinguisher this year, which I have already put to use.
Unfortunately, Padre has been delayed in coming by the snowstorm that passed through a little while ago. We all hope and pray that he will make it here safely.
