[Margaret Hay Lunan]
Martinez, CaliforniaMarch 27, 1898My dear Cousin, I thought I had written to you at New Year. I am sorry to hear of Mr Buchan's illness The breaking down of a brain is always a sad sight & mostly hopeless. The only comfort is in the love of friends & back looks on a life well spent. Mrs Kellys case is sad too though she bears her trouble so well. Remember me to her, I always look back with pleasure to the evenings spent at her house. I'm sending with this a copy of a magazine which has one of my articles on the Yellowstone Park. Also one to yourself. Did I send you two other Atlantic monthlies with forest articles? If not I'll send them.I'm glad to hear you & Maggie are well after the long dark winter. I wish I could spend a winter with you to see the grand storms & a spring to hear the skylarks & see the hawthorn ridges & the [heather?] once more.02413
