2is sugar pine. I saw thousands of them along the ridge between Bear Valley & Squirrel Inn. The cones are so much smaller & in such rich clusters as compared with those of the Sierra it looks somewhat like Monticola. You do not mention the pinus Coulteri. I lots of it near the upper limit of the tuberculata above San Bernardino. The cones of the Coulter are the heaviest & grandest in appearance of all the cones in the world.I dont know when our winter meeting is to be. But I'll not fail to call attention to the oversight of the Secretary to which you refer. Also to club excursions & arrangments for hotel accomodationIm pegging away at an article on the Yellowstone. Then will come the other parks. The pictures of your home Christmas time are very telling. Thanking you again & hoping to see you here ere long with love to Lottie & kind regards to allI am Yours John Muir
