submit to your publishers for illustration, if agreeable to you, when the book is ready.
Mrs. Gleason and I are planning another California trip for next summer, leaving here March 1st, as I have been asked to deliver a series of lectures on the Coast under the management of Mr. [Illegible] of Los Angeles. I do not know yet whether he has booked me for San Francisco or not, but I presume I shall have several engagements in that vicinity, and if so I hope at least one of them will be within easy reach for you, for I would like very much to have you see my slides, especially those on California. Mr. Hors-burgh urges me to bring my California slides with me for he says (and my experience corroborates it) that there are a great multitude of people in California who know absolutely nothing about the glorious scenery of their own state.
We enjoyed very much the other day reading your manuscript of "Stickeen" which H. M. & Co. sent to me to look over as they had heard I had a photograph of "Stickeen." But I found, of course, that my picture of the present "Stickeen" would hardly do to represent the original.
Mrs. Gleason joins me in most cordial regards,both for you and Miss Helen, who, we hope, is now enjoying the best of health, and wishing you all the compliments of the season I am

Faithfully yours,
