J.M.2.of December. Put on your seven-league boots and scoot down there, take your rapid-transit pen in hand arid finish the thing up; then make Mr. Robinson do his very level best on sketches. We have one of his oils of the Canon which is very good.When can you come East? Your Yosemite articles have made you many new friends in this region, and I Wish you could come East and deliver a few lectures before Geographical societies or Columbia College;- or we could let you give an open-air reading in Central Park, which is now looking its best,- altogether better than the Stoneman House region.Always faithfully yours,R.N. Johnson.0/469
