5and at present time Mrs Cass who has a son in B.C. and who has spent years in California British Columbia and Alaska in search for gold. It seems to me that the study and research you have give to the study of the geology of the places mentioned that you could locate valuable mining property, but a person who enjoys nature [illegible]as gold is of no account. I saw Mr. Stewart a few weeks ago. he an editor at the present time. [Griswold?] lives here. I met Patrick the janitor when I was at Madison and he is well. He said he went to Prof.022866Bullters to see you but you had gone and he regreted in not seeing you. You recalled he used to let us down to the basement to roast our potatoes We were the favored few. I have two nieces in California one 1461 Carroll St Los Angeles and the other at Moneta, Los Angeles Co. Cal. Should you be in their vicinity I would be please to have you call on them. Mrs Peck lives at Los Angeles and Mrs Dean at Mineta. Excuse my not answering before but your book "Mountains of California" was loaned and address on last letter enclosed. I remain your loving friendJohn Howett02286
