Martinez, July 4, 1907.[in margin: Gen 3174]Dear Lumis:I was nearly ten days in Pasadena & Los Angeles visiting our friend Sellers who has had a very hard dangerous time with pneumonia in your blessed braggy climate. I found him still far far from well though able to ride about & guide me through your confused canon streets. He discovered the Library for me but found you had fled. I went to your Castle to pay my respects to Mrs Lummis but found not a soul or sound there save the basket-jawed bulldog. Then I went to Riverside to see Frank Miller about the big hotel to be built in Yosemite. He also had vanished. Still


Martinez [Calif.]
