[2]Nos of Picturesque Califonia up to the 30th where they ceased. The Bulletin still continues to comeI applied at the Post Office but they could do nothing till we had inquired at the other end. On the 27th October I wrote the J De[illegible]ing Co Publishers San Francisco stating that the last two numbers of Picturesque Cali'a had never come to hand but that the Bulleting still continued to come, but have received no answer.About a month previously I had written the San Francisco Bulletin that Mrs. Lunam at Dunbar had received a first number but never any more.[3]Perhaps you may be more successful in finding out a solution.Well now, we are moderately well in both households here. My oldest boy, John & a colleague had a camping out excursion in Ireland in the month of August & Sep'r--the worst wet weather that has been there for years. They carried their own camp & have slept in a House or bed all the 5 weeks--& finished up with a months practise at the Coomb Lying in Hospital Dublin--their excursion route was from Dublin right across the country to Galway
