[6]reminded me of the San Gabriel valley - where I spent a year of my life. You see the mountains of Cal. are not quite unfamiliar to me; but I [illegible]m only southern Cal. I want to see the King's River Canon [diacritic].I hope you received my little [song?] about the ouzel. - and that you were pleased with it - as you were with the "song of the [Missouri".?]Mr. Burroughs said I must send you the two[7]other poems I enclose because I told him reading your book brought back so vividly to me the summer I spent in the San Bernardino mts -at "River Oaks" - that I could see as plainly as I did then the squirrels playing in the forests. Of course you have seen the March Atlantic, and enjoyed the flaying Mr. B gives the sham naturalists.I thank you for the list of your writings
