Mirram got home at 3 or 4 P.M.As soon as you get this write me what you most want, especially in eatables & Ill bring a trunkful Ive often thought I should have sent some by express ere this, anyhow you & I must have a good sig time together before we leave the grand old coal bunkers & Sniff pony & the wandering wayfaring tramp crows I had long letter from Simpson the Santa Fe advertising agent thanking me for the map of all the forests & the information I sent him etc. Also had letter from the New York Tribune editor requesting information about the "Blue Forest" I had lately discovered. so that name is pretty sure to hold fast. Don't get lonesome Dear- Ill jump for the train immediately after the end- (or beginning of the half 1/2 merry Tommy trouble- Ever yours Darling with endless love. J M
