There is such a change in relation to the buildings but the three buildings that were when we attended remain the same. I took a look at the building and the location of the022862of the rooms we occupied. Pleasant to the memory are the "days of Lang Syne". I regreted so much that I did not see you at the time you were at Portage. What a pleasant visit we would have had I intended to have Judge Griswold & J. [T?]. Stewart to be with us also. I have read your book on the "Mountains of California" I enjoyed it so much and I have lent it to a number of friends and at present time my nephew who is teaching is reading it He has enjoyed it very much. I enjoyed your descriptions of your [examination?] to the different National Parks but have not received your report02286
