Martinez, CaliforniaDec. 20, 1901 -My dear Harry Randall.I'm delighted to hear from you & get a sketch of you life, though a meagre one, in the long eventful years since our Yosemite days. I have no lack of friends & have acquaintances in every rank almost everywhere nowadays, but I never forget old friends, & those of early pioneer days in the grand Sierra are my especial delight. I have often wondered where you were & how the battle of life was going with you. I remember you took a great liking to Mr Hamilton the carpenter who was working with Mr Hedges & he to you & I think you told me that you were going into partnership with him to raise cattle in some of the wild states. I'm glad to learn you00215
