[letterhead]San Francisco, Nov 15 1880Dear Doctor StrentzelTired and worn out we found it impossible yesterday, in passing Martinez, to stop over though we thus missed a pleasant day. But I am anxious to get home and will only be a few days at this place to close up my affairs. I send you a plant of Y[illegible] whipplei from San Bernard’no, and will add seeds of the same as soon as I unpack my box. Your box of grapes and the addition of the Alhambra were very [illegible] especially the latter, when we [illegible]sed a miserable and chilly night on the stage from Santa Anna to San Luis [illegible]. Many thanks! The last of the grapes were consumed at the place of a Scotch settler near [illegible]who was very obliging and assisted us06383
