thanking me for about 200 more Photographs of my takingMartinez Nov. 12, 1897My dear Lukens.I thank you for the magnificent set of photographs which arrived the other day. The Canon set brings back the glorious days I spent there last year The one with the white cloud is particularly telling. The Flagstaff one has a fine view of the wonderful San Francisco Mtns & the limestone ledges with the Cavedwellers huts are fine & interesting pictures. Eaton Canon is a fine picture & recalls my visit 20 yrs ago. Then the rocks were lined with moss & ferns, Now I see they are bare.The Buck Horn Canon picture is one of the most charming flowery ferny forest scenes I ever saw. it must be engraved some day The specimen you have marked "Monticola"
