“Wind storm in the Yuba Forest” was charming exquisite While I was on terra [illegible] not perched as you in a Douglass spruce, I too could close my eyes and have the vividly drawn scene before me, not in all the beauty that was disclosed to you, but beauty enough to make me grateful and happy for the pure delight. The very names of the trees send a thrill of pleas- ure through me so much seems associated with them. “The Mountain Lakes”, was also charming. Do you recall the lovely little blue [ saucers?] filled to the brim, which [ now?] Im snugly nestled among the Peaks, the day we went to the top of the mountain from which we looked into Cinder Cone? And again the day we were looking for [ Bumper?]? Oh dear what a day full of pleasure and weariness. I should like to follow you step by step and put on paper just the memories which are stirred, and the longings which are excited by what you write, but I fear it would be pleas- ant but to me, one thing I must do, [illegible] with you for have been so foolish as to take a miserable cold which has placed me under the Drs. care. and prevents my writing more. Thanks for the Colorado cities. Your friend Sallie J. Kennedy.I was glad to hear good news from Prof. Butler. How happy he will be over the Carpenters success. 00823
