[Jeanne C.] Carr
lovingly to His precious mtn pines. The brown meadows are nightly frosted browner & the yellow aspens are losing their leaves I wish I could write to you, but hard work near & far presses heavily & I cannot Nature makes huge demands yet pays a thousand thousand fold. As in all the mtns I have seen about the head of Merced & Tuolumne. This region is a song of God On my way home yesterday afternoon I gathered you these orange leaves from a grove of one of the San Joaquin Yosemites, little thought I that you would receive them so soon Remember me to the Doctor & the boys & to Mrs & Mr Moore & Keith Farewell ———Dr Kellogg wishes to be kindly remembered
…San Joaquin, near divide of San Joaq and Kings River
