[in margin: Weather funereal & [illegible] With best wishes to yourself & the [illegible] am ever truly J.M.](2)I first thought after conferring with the publishers that I could put the material in shape & thus save you further trouble. But my ignorance I find is too thick for the purpose & too comprehensive.In talking over the country yesterday with Messrs Dewing & Oge it seemed best that you should not attempt to cover so much territory with so thin a layer of words but rather that you should give a good solid instructive, lively & shining picture of Passadena the B[illegible] & the old Mexican & Young American Angels with all their flowers grand beds & groves etc etc & padres. Mr. Oge [stricken word] however promised to write you particularly & I need say nothing more than Good Luck & I but forget the arithmetical signs for the top of pagesCA 146
