[4]been able to find time to write anything for myself, but if I live to get these Harriman books out you may depend upon it I'll never get caught that way again. How are you all? Well I trust. Drop your pen & take the train & tuck Helen into your pocket and let us see how you look in February. With kindest regards to you all, and affectionate thanks for your bountiful & generous Xmas, wh[illegible] will keep the Merriam & Bailey families [busy?] all winter.As ever yoursC. Hart Merriam.[1]WashingtonJany. 24, 1901.My dear Mr Muir.:Your carload of California delicacies has arrived and quite overwhelmed us. My wife wonders if there are any nuts left in the State! And such delicious nuts too! The children take to them like squirrels. When we opened the nut bags Mrs Merriam said, "now we must get some fine raisins to go with them". And when I opened the box and found those perfectly superb and luscious raisins, and the delicious Sauterne too - I'll not try to tell you what any of us said.02838
