9742 1419 Taylor St S F Apr’ 3d [1876]Dear Mrs Carr, We will all be glad to see you We all heard of the outrage committed on Johnnie & hoped it might not be so serious as made to appear in the press Mr. Swett told me the other day that he met a friend down town who was acquainted with the Whites intimately who gave it as his opinion that Mr White was insane – had a brother in the asylum- & was as jealous of a half dozen other persons as of Johnnie If I knew Neds boarding house I would visit him for I know he must feel terribly agitated The last time I saw him he was rejoicing over Johnnies steady manly development like an old fond father over some reformed son – As for the stranded sapless condition of political geology I care only for the fruitless work expended upon it by friends The glaciers are not affected thereby neither am I nor Cassidpa-
