Grand Hotel S.F.July 11, 1889Dear Louie, I was very glad to get your letter today for somehow I was getting anxious about your all as if instead of a week I had been gone a year & had nothing but lonesome silence all the time. You must see surely that I am getting literary for I have just finished writeing for the day & it is half past 12. Last eve went to bed at this time & got up at 6 & have written 20 pages today & feel proud that now I begin to see the end of this article that has so long been a black growling cloud in my sky. Some of the 20 pages was pretty good to I think. I'll copy a 01358
