12[letterhead]Sarah Orne Jewett was there, & all was delightful. Here of course Johnson made me tell that dog story as if that were the main result of glacial action & all my studies but I got in a good deal of ice-work better than this & never had better listeners. Judge Howland whom I met in Yosemite with a party who has a sp[illegible] car came in since I began this letter to invite me to a dinner tomorrow evening with a lot of his friends. I must get that article done & set the day of sailing for Europe or I wont get away at all. This makes three dinners ahead already. I fear the tail of my article will be of another color from the body. Johnson has been most devoted to me ever since I arrived & I cant make him stop. I think I told you the Century wants to publish my book. They also want me to write articles from Europe. Must stop. Love to all. How glad I was to get Wandas long good[in margin: letter this morning dated June 2. All letters in Johnsons care will find me wherever I go here or in Europe]
