920 Valencia St San Francisco Feb 18th – 79.Dear Mrs Carr. Yesterday I sent you by mail five dollars worth of tree seeds, according to directions. They seemed fresh, & I was assured they were so. Hope they may grow as well as they can for you, & at least hint the beauty of their homes & their fathers. I have been strongly tempted to make another visit to southern Cala, but have concluded the season is too far gone. Your letter lay at John Swetts some time, so the seeds may not reach you in time though I suppose Allie will attend to the planting. I am glad to think of Allie as a tiller of the soil Good luck to the boy. 00834
