[letterhead]have given much to have been with you, for nothing affords me more pleasure than to ride amongst those noble trees.To terminate such a splendid trip, as you did, with the magnificent Grand Canon was very fitting. We do not wonder that the ride to it through the open sunny woods (which we have partly seen) afforded you so much pleasure, and we shall look forward with happy anticipation to the time when you will tell us about it and the other glorious forests that you visited.Times are terribly dull here, all business is "hanging by the gills" awaiting the election of McKinley, should, however by any chance Bryan go in, God help us for the country will see four of the hardest years in its history.We want to visit California this winter but it will depend upon a sound money victory at the polls next Thursday. The general feeling here seems to be that the honest dollar will win, but there is naturally much anxiety all of which you, however, have most pleasantly escaped.Fay & Frank join me in kind regards to you and your family and trust we may see you in the near futureYours sincerelyA H Sellers02170
