W. H. Trout
3Still in regard to my California trip I can only write indefinitely My agreement looks forward to no leisure; that will have to be snatched out between times. Those patents have to be brought before the public in good form, very soon; and there are a number of other new constructions to be brought out.The late head of our saw mill Dept was last month suddenly called to his final account taking away the big obstacle to my progress as well as the progress of the despot A young progressive man takes his place so you can see there will be abundance of new work for me to do But to California next spring or summer I must go and it shall not be a flying visit either my daughter will accompany me. I want to take it in, from Los Angeles to Vancouver I shall be pleased to hear from regarding your own health and that of your daughters also any hints as to time and direction of coming As ever your affectionate friend.W.
