Martinez, Cal. Dec. 3. 1898My dear Mr Kip,I reached home three days agao, & your kind note of the 9th of last month written when I was on my way to Florida reached me today. I should have been delighted to have visited you this summer but my trip has been all given to the forests & it seemed impossible to see one in ten on a score of the friends I wanted to visit I hope the fates will be better to one next time. A sketch of my trip as a whole will show you how sternly I have been driven, Left home Sep 7th by the Oregon railroad to Portland, thence to Spokane & around to Duluth by the great Northern. Then down the lakes by steam to Buffalo thence to Boston, Next day to Cape Cod. Then back to Boston & off to the Alleghany forests with Prof. Sargent & Mr Canby of Wilmington, Del. through N. Carolina, Georgia,


Martinez, Calif.
