We always read with such eagerness any literature that bears your name and I have sent to Boston for your Picturesque California for my mother's delectation. Of all the books she has ever met in her long years of invalidism, her wanderings with you in "National Parks" has afforded her most pleasure.Hoping that you will not consider me and my request as like the girl who was "worse than wicked, she was cheeky," and that in my zeal I have not too far abused your patience, I am, with greatest respect,Your admirer,(Miss) Juliette A.
