I enjoyed looking at the many different kinds of trees in the park but most of all I enjoyed looking at the noble pines. There are medicinal properties in the fragrance of these trees. “Life, life,” my husband used to say when riding amongst the pines. “Breathe deep, Ellen; fill your lungs with the fragrant, life-giving atmosphere.”—Letter 293, 1904, pp. 5, 6. (To Brother and Sister Belden, October 17, 1904.)

When I got off the boat, when I walked up through the streets, it seemed to me as though I was still on the boat, and I would step so high that people must have thought I was drunk....

Just at the entrance to the campground was a large tree, and they told us that that tree had been the place of the Indians’ burying ground. Here they would lay their dead until they could take them away to some other spot.—Manuscript 4, 1878, 1. (E. G. White visit to Oregon State Prison, undated.)

We have much hope that this camp meeting shall prove a success. We pray much that God will be with us.

I miss James, oh, so much. And I have feelings of indescribable loneliness, but yet I am among kind friends who do all for me that they can.—Letter 29, 1878, p. 1. (To Lucinda Hall, June 19, 1878.)

I am recovering from my sickness and hope to be in good running order by camp meeting time.—Letter 30, 1878, p. 1. (To “Dear Son Edson,” June 20, 1878.)
