[letterhead]above the City where we could see Mt. Ranier, St. Helens, Adams, Hood & Jefferson from one point, in addition to over 100 miles of the Columbia River; the flora surpassed anything I have ever seen; and, as Mr.Haines is an entusiast on this spot, he requested me to urge you to call on him the first time you were in Portland, so that he might have the pleasure of taking you in person to this charming spot. I fear to enclose the photograph of the "baby tree" in this letter as it may be broken but I will try to get a mailing envelope for it and send it to you before02328[4][letterhead]I leave. Let me know to Morristown if it reaches you in good condition. and now I must for myself and children say adieu but with the earnest hope that you will acept our invitiation to visit us at our home in Morristown.Truly yoursGeo.
