"Century" for 1891. "A Rival of the Yosemite" I am extremely anxious to find any information regarding Mt. Whitney and vicinity and Keni Canon [diacritic] and have though you will perhaps give me some reference to books or reports on the subject.I have tried to find this without troubling you but have failed to find anything touching the subject except what I have mentioned of yours. So I come to you, fearing to intrude, but so anxious for what I ask that I feel you, who so love the beauty and magnificenceof the Sierras will excuse the liberty I have taken, because though very ignorant of much that would add to my appreciation of their grandeur, I have enjoyed this summer's outing as I never enjoyed any other pleasure in life. And I feel sure you can give me some idea of where to look for what I am seeking.Yours sincerelyClaire S. RobinsonRoom 8, P.O. Bldg.AlamedaCal.
