Mabel Colf, [et al.]
Martinez, July 17, 1904.Dear scholars four,Mabel Colf, Lilian Sexton, Marie Watron & Harmon O. Parsons, I was far away in Australia beneath the Southern Cross when your kind good letters to me were written, & when I got home I read them. non of the big pile on my desk pleased me more. It was very kind of you to write these letters, & I thank you & your teacher & others for the honors you report, especially the dedication of your Arbor Day Redwood.The Redwood grows taller than any other tree in the world. One that I measured was 340 feet high, & some may be 50 or 60 feet higher, while the tallest Australian Eucalyptus as far as known does not exceed 300 feet in height,
Original letter dimensions unknown.
