2.But my inclinations are toward the wilderness,and I hope to follow some such vocation as I hope at Grand View. I should like very much to talk with you about the mountains of this State.Before leaving Arizona I made a visit to Adamana, and spent two days with Stevenson. I enjoyed the locality very much, and was astonished at the diverse features of interest thereabouts, besides the wood-my talk with you at Grand View had prepared me to appreciate the marvellous. deposit. Of'course the atmosphere was full of you.I hope you and Miss Helen are in good health. Mrs. Goulding joins me in kindest regards to yew both. I should be very glad indeed, to hear from you, or far better, if you are at home and ready to see folks now-a-days,I should like to make a pilgrimage to Martinez for a day some time when I am San Francisco.Very trulyyours,[illegible]
