[4]It is by Harriet Beecher Stowe.It is commencing to rain now so I suppose it will not snow as I hoped it would.Papa did not go up to the ranch this week and is consequently anxious for next Friday to come.Hoping to see you again before many weeks I remain your true friend.Hattie E. Allen01215[1]San Jose, Cal, Jan. 18, 1886.Dear Mr. Muir,_You don't know how nice it was of you and how much I appreciate the little album you sent. It is lovely and whenever I show any one the drawing on the first page they all say, "That is just like Mr. Muir."I showed it to nearly all the teachers at school and they were all delighted with it.
