Olaf F. Ellison
[first draft of letter, in note-book #59] (47)[Jan.,1902]Mr. Olaf F. Ellison,5 l/2 Kearny St.,San Francisco.My dear Sir:I an sorry that I was away at the Grand Can [you] when Miss Gertrude P. Boyle, introduced by your kind note of Jan. 15th, called at our house, and I am sorry that I missed seeing her. I had already heard of her and her work through Mrs. Swett, our neighbor, an admirer and friend of hers, and should have been glad to meet her.The sitting for a bust seems likely to prove a serious interruption to the work now on my hands. I am looking forward to the spring, when I hope to find a little leisure, and will then be able to see her.With best wishes, I am,Very truly yours,J. M.02890
[1902 Jan ?]
