[2]from your experiences. The Sun. of July 30th, when you came, we had ventured to go accross the lake, Lake Washington, to a spot I wanted to take you and John Burrought. when we returned, we did not find your envelope with your names], as a mischievous boy had taken it away, and I only found it by accident the next[3]day. I went down town at once but too late for the train and the Elder as well, so whichever way you went I missed it all, and feel it to be all unspeakable loss. I do not like to think of you and John Burroughs standing outside my door, with no welcome to greet you. I never felt my little library more honored than when you and he sat in it.
