[2]I have put with them a photograph which I took last summer in the Hetch Hetchy, which seems to me very pretty. The picture of the sequoias at the Giant Forest I have labelled "the great woods of Heaven" - a name given to the Big Trees by a dear wee Californian boy who has lived in England since he was a baby, but remains ardently loyal to California. Isn't it a pretty name? Will you remember me
