Mountains & waving hills rising in board billows beyond each other all richly covered with the most beautiful trees. I would like to stay a year. How deliciously fresh the air is full of the scents of the woods.I am to see Agarriz & Hunnewell so Sargent says. & Page wants to show me the Boston writers. He has a months non[illegible] cut out for me which of course must be cut down.Page says the bird & beast articles are just right as they are & must be published immediately. He is to send the proof sheets of the birds to Baltimore. I'm having a fine time Canby & Sargent good as can be watch the fires.With much love to all Your loving brother J.M.
