2426 Floyd AveRichmond VaMy dear brother John:-I seem to have a poor supply of writing paper, but I do not believe it can hinder me from writing you a letter, for I have been reading the entire afternoon Your "Incomparable Yosemite" and I must tell you how much I like it while it is still thrilling me with its music. I have read the general description of it, the wonderful winter scene, the earth quake storms. A good deal about the trees and flowers; then I went and got out your other two books to compare your descriptions of the blessed little water ouzel and as each one seemed sweeter than the other, I could almost say that I like it best of all your Yosemite treasures, because these dear birds have cheered you so often.05416
