[3]him all his bird pictures for the book which is to come out in a year or two. and will be collecting mammals and photos this spring until June then he leaves for the east to be gone six months. I do hope your visit this spring will come before he goes finally. I want him to see you again and exchange woods notes, He is so happy to be really at work. I hope he will go seriously into the natural history part. It would please me to have him give up all money making ambition and devote his life to this work he loves best. I learn through the Willards that Ellie and all the Hookers are to go abroad for the summer. Fine for them but we shall miss them. I am going over to spend a week with Mrs Hale, just to break the first loneliness when Donald goes as Mr Hale is away until July. She wants me to stay all the time but I can't bear to leave my home. Let me know ahead when you come down & I shall be ready for you any time and get Donald
