[Jeanne C. ] Carr
01277Martinez, Oct. 22. 1887.Dear Mrs. Carr.I told Mr Dewing that I thought you could write Southern California better than anybody else that I knew, & that he better let you try your hand on an article or two. As to compensation I know very little about it. Go ahead & write an article & send in your bill is my advice. I may say however that not more than magazine rates will be paid, as far as I can make out. Little has been written as yet. I have finished some four numbers now mostly in print with [firm?] illustrations by the best artists Hill Keith, Moran, Rix, etc. on the passes forests Yosemite etc. Have to write Alaska, Sierra Lakes, Shasta. San Rafael Redwoods etc. (& run the ranch) & edit the whole compound business,The first three numbers are about to be published.
