25/3Martinez, Jan, 11, 1902Mrs Emily P. WehonDear friend of auld lang syne I'm delighted to find you & see your handwriting after this long silence. It is wonderful how people drift apart on varying currents of duty & work without intention. I've never forgotten you - never forget any of my old friends, but I'm usually in the wilderness all summer & in my study all winter so I seldom make visits. Oakland seems farther away than Alaska, - have not made a single visit in your town during the last fifteen years.
1902 Jan 11
