[Jeanne C.] Carr
00749 [letterhead] Los Angeles, Cal. Aug 12th 1877Dear Mrs Carr Ive seen your sunny Pasadena & the patch called yours, Everything about here pleases me & I felt sorely tempted to take Dr Congars advice & invest in an orange patch myself. I feel sure you will be happy here with the Doctor & Allie among so rich a luxuriance of sunny vegetation How you will dig & dibble in that mellow loom, I cannot think of you standing erect for a single moment unless it be in looking away out into the dreamy west. I made a fine shaggy little five days excursion back in the heart of the San Gabriel Mountains, and then a week of real pleasure with Congar resurrecting the past about Madison He has a fine little farm fine little family & fine cozy home.
