[Page 3] Winds, when they are coming you reply. I am glad you made some new acquaintances among the Alaskan trees, and that they made you happy, as your letter to Mrs. Graydon revealed. Nature has been a sweet mother to you, and right loyal have you ever been to her. I saw her image reflected from your soul as I took those pleasant Sierra rambles with you in the long ago. But I must end the rambles of my pen. A man who has time to write letters of friendship only one page long, presumably, has no time for reading long-winded letters. We are all very glad however
