2climate, conditions of living etc" in long letters to the Democrat are not good nerve cures, especially in these southern lowland towns where real (unreal) estate agents make one dizzy with their confounded statistics & mean temperatures.Come to the Sierra next spring & rest under a sequoia or sugar pine. come direct to my house & make it your headquarters, & I'll tell you all about the best most hospitable groves. If you come by the Santa Fe' get off at Muir station, near our house, If by the Southern Pacific stop at Martinez, If by the Union & Central Pacific you had better go on to San Francisco & there take the Santa Fe for "Muir" a distance of only an hour & a half - & let me know when to look for you a week or two in advance.09194
