[2]like. This same gentleman invites me to go in the crowd, and I am slightly tempted to think I ought to go to keep an eye on you all. The only thing that daunts me is the fact that there will be a crowd; but the Canon is a very good and convenient place for disposing of superfluous companions; and if there were a reasonable probability of having a fair whack at you and a few others that I should care to be with, and of being able to shin up a tree away from the rest, or drop the most inevitable of them over the rim, I should be a good deal minded to try to shape things to go. Let me know a little of what you plan to do; just about what time you expect to spend there, and whether you intend to go anywhere else.I wish you could get down here fo before that time and see us; or at least start a little ahead of the excursion and stop over here and#3- J. M.- go on with us, in which case I should be pretty certain to run out at least for part of the time.Turbese sends her love to all your house.Hastily but always sincerely yours,Chas. F. Lummis02993
