Mr Wm. L. Manley,Stockton Ave.San Jose. Cala.[in margin: [Anto?]]My dear Sir:The most interesting book that I have read in many a year is your "Death Valley" which was kindly forwarded by Mr Agnew. I found it interesting from beginning to end, all the more because I am somewhat acquainted with that grand & dreadful desert region, having spent three summers in the Great Basin & nearly perished with thirst a short distance to the north of Death Valley. Your own strong brave kindly character as well as that of many of your companions is nobly displayed in the history03087
