[Jeanne C.] Carr
1419 Taylor St May 4th 1875Dear Mrs Carr - Here I am safe in the arms of Daddy S[illegible]ett – home again from Icy Shasta & richer than ever in dead river gravel & in snow storms & snow. The upper end of the main Sacramento Valley is entirely covered with ancient river drift & I wandered over many square miles of it. In every peeblec I could hear the sounds of running water. The whole deposit is a poem whose many books & chapters form the geological Vedas of our glorious state I discovered a new species of hail on the summit of Shasta & experienced one of the most beautiful & most violent snow storms imaginable.
1875 May 4
