[5]down to us with no taint or stain of the orthodox Adam’s Fall. I scarcely think though that the ancient gardener grew a Camellia quite so exquisitely beautiful as the Camellia Wilderi that bloom- ed for me the past month. C. Turman has two magnificent blossoms almost twice as large but not so perfect in form as the other. My ferns are all beginning to send up their new fronds, even the tiniest and most pre- cious of all my pets, Adiantum Farbyense. So you see the Springtime is with us: Mount Diablo, and the green hills and flower decked valleys are ready for your coming. We want so much to have you here in April with the moonbeams and apple- blooms. The twentieth of the month will bring to them the fullness of perfection. Faithfully Your friend, Louie W. [ Strentrel?].
