conspicuous, and allow lee way for any [illegible] with the illustrations, it is really better than hurrying so [illegible] a paper to press in a week, even if that were feasible. Your “[illegible illegible]” is in type, and will appear in April [number?], which will be deliverable by the 15th. or 18th. I will read and revise proof with the utmost care. You spoke of desiring the Yosemite paper to appear in time for the spring Yosemite travel. It can easily do so in the [underlined: June] number, following your first paper in due [illegible], for that number will be out the middle of May, before any but a very few daring tourists will have started for the Valley. Believe me we have every [illegible]tion to meet your wishes in the publication of your valuablecontributions, [illegible] after once fairly beginning there will be no interruption or delay, provided we can always have the [Mss.?] easly enough. Sincerely Yours, [Benj. P. Avery.?]
