[letterhead] Knows, [above?] the stables on the Creek; the other is [illegible] [Douglasis?], the blue mountain oak, on the bare hills above you a few specimens of each of them in flower and again a week or two later when the leaves are not yet fully grown (showing the f[illegible] flowers or [young acorns?]) would be very desirable. I would say that I found a few specimens of the Cobata also on the hills, but Douglasis is readily distinguished by the smoother, whiter bark, the [smaller and less color leaves?]; it seems to be the [illegible] tree on the [illegible] hills. And now my best wishes for mother and daughter and all of youYours truly [G Engelmann?]00988
