Sarah [Muir Galloway]
00667The Scotch are slow but some day I will have the results of my mountain studies in a form in wh you all will be able to read & judge of them. In the mean time I write occaisonally for the Overland Monthly but neither these magazine articles nor my first book will form any finished part of the scientific contribution that I hope to make. Here is clipping that you will like to read please return it when you are done with it The mountains are calling & I must go & I will work on while I can, studying incessantly. My love to you all, David & the children & Mrs Galloway who though shut out from sunshine yet dwells in Light I will write again when I return from Kings River Canon. The leaf sent me from China is for Cecelia Farewell with love everlasting
