is now in the hands of the Silversmiths and should be completed in about four weeks. The price is the $400.00 and nearly all of the money is already in hand. This is the first really Spring-like day we have had, the English Sparrows are sitting on my window sill chattering away at each other and flying around with straws in their bills, preparing to build their nests. The Century Magazine people are preparing [illegible] two articles, of a narrative character, by Burroughs, and I am assisting in illustrating the articles. If you come this way don't fail to let me know.Very [Sincerely] YoursR. Swain Gifford
