01355[1]11. P.M.Grand HotelSan FranciscoJuly 8th 1889Dear Louie no more [illegible]s Have managed to see more today. I will send you a page or two of my M.S. instead which no doubt you will like better though some would call it dull & [illegible] - I wrote it last night between 10 & 11 oclock after finishing my letter to you. By the way this makes five letters to you such as they are & not a line from you or even Wanda. Tell [Fran?] to sweep the roofs every day to prevent accumulations of lint. I also wet them with a few buckets of water. He has not much else to do. Also try to get Morgan to come out & put a new top on that chimney, & tell [Fran?] to be careful not to make larger fires than necessary, especially not to burn paper or much fine kindling to make sudden drafts. Send 50 more bxs apples. I'm lonesome, Tell Wanda.
