1419 Taylor St San Francisco Dec’ 7th, 1876Dear brother Dan I wish you were a little less taci[illegible], I seldom hear from you, & were it not for letters from mother & Dave & the girls, you would long ere this have become wholly invisible to me. In my long lonely explorations of the wilds of this vast region of California & Nevada I some- -times think of our rambles in the Canada woods when you were my only companion & how I used to hope you would devote yourself to similar Natural studies, I have just returned from a long recounaisance of the mountain ranges of Nevada North Capt Rodgers of the Coast Surrey. Next year we hope to reach the Rocky Mountains in Colorado between Lat’ 38° 30’ & 59° 30’ -
