[A. H.] Sellers
Martinez, Cal. Aug. 31, 1899.My dear SellersI was very glad to hear from you. I was thinking about you when your letter came. I hope that confounded devouring business will not be the death of you all before you are free from it. No wonder you are not feeling well I dont think I could stand it a week. Your month at the lake club will do some good but you should some to the Sierra. I got back nearly a month ago but have made a short trip to the California Sequoias. The weather all through the voyage was fine & the views we had of the Fairweather Mountains, The St Elias Alps & their glaciers, & The glaciers & mountain scenery in general of Prince WIlliams Sound were perfectly glorious. We had grand & exceedingly interesting views of icy flowers smoking volcanoes in Cook Inlet & along the Alaska Peninsula
Original letter dimensions unknown.
