[in margin: 879]Martinez, CaliforniaAugust 20, 1895Dear John,Your letter from Crocker's Station telling of your safe arrival has just come, and O how rejoiced we are to see it, though we shiver with the thought of all the dangers that surrounded you. Those terrible rattlesnakes! O dear husband, do not go again among such treacherous thickets.We all feel so grateful to those kind people that came to meet you and made you comfortable in Hetch Hetchy.Now that you are in a cool restful region we hope that you will grow well and strong, once more your own mountaineer self without any of the lowland worries.02015
