[George W.] Cable
so complacently as a naturalist without ever seeming to take time to look up & about to behold the glory of God.Thank you for Lanier. I have had my eye on him for some time as a pact of great promise. How sad he should have left us so soon. And yet he has done far more than I thought he had. His pa[illegible]s have delicious fragrance & vividness. & how [sure?] & sustained & easy the beat of his wingI shall always remember my cu[illegible]ing & little ride along the bay with you as one of the best blessings of 93. When are you coming again to our side the continent. [Man?] theres much for you here ready and waiting. Dont spend all your day talking & writing
