[Jeanne C.] Carr
Los Angeles. Aug 12. 77.I felt at home with Congar & at once took possession of his premises & all that in them is. We drove down [in margin: #30] through the settlements eastward & saw the best orange groves & vineyards but the mountains I as usual met alone. Although so gray & silent & unpromising they are full of wild gardens & ferneries Lilyries some specimens ten feet high with twenty lilies big enough for bonnets, The main results I will tell you some other time should you ever have an hours leisure. I go North today, by rail to Newhall thence by stage to Soledad & on to Monterey where I will take to the woods & feel my way in free study to San Fran May reach the city about the middle of next month. Heard through your factor here that Miss Powell is worse & that you would not be down soon I received your letter & Postal, also the letters you thought I had lost viz one from Salt Lake for which I sent & one from Yosemite wh Black forwarded With love to all I am ever yrs cordially JM
