it seems only sociable to confine to the ro[s?]t[illegible], pulpit, and the press).I enclose Mr. Millard's article - and another - which is on a subject that may interest your daughters, as Californians, - for I believe that Mr. Millard's [illegible] will be realized in proportion as this movement (in which California has come very near joining Utah, Colorado, Idaho & Wyoming) for greater political liberty is advanced -May I also add that your report of Mr. Emerson's talk with you reminds me of his essay on nature of which I am exceedingly fond.Hoping that someday we may have that meeting in Marin - The last time I was out hunting there was with Shafter & Will Kent - isn't he a boss cook & a good illustration of his own philosophy that a man is judged by "the company he is, also." He certainly has picked out a good name for those woods he has given to the state - if only judging by the same standard just mentioned.Sincerely yours,Harold Howard
