A letter and newspapers came today from my cousin Melyin Henderson, Upland, Calif. The papers dealt largely with the recent fires. Such utter destruction, and in his letter he said it is thought to be the result of arsonists. How terrible. 'Hope they are caught and punished". Ex* cerpts from his letter say "This was not the only fire. We have had three in Upland. Sunday night, ope was just east of our house toward the Country Club. That night one broke out in-Alta Loma, that we could plainly see from our house. Then Monday was the clincher. A brush fire broke out just east of the packing house about half a .mile, and with the strong winds it was only a miracle that we were not burned out of a job. The fire was almost at our .front door. I had men on the roof with fire hoses, ana others with sho,vels. There were dozens of pieces of local and county equipment as well as the plane bombing from above with borate solution. I sent the Women home about 3:30 p.m., and honestly I felt like we were doomed, and the plant would go. Fortunately, the wind, changed and wt were spared.

At'least it is a clean affair and the Santanas are so dirty!) We must have cleaned out two pecks of fine dust, from the house. Leaves have been blown about, trees and flowers damaged and limbs down.
