will appear, would it not be well to include them in the list and bring the date down to the present?Will send you up a couple of little booklets of Sonnets in a few days. On the cover shall request the recipient to refrain from publishing without my permission, so I trust they will not get prematurely before the general public and kill any commercial value they may have for me.Give my very best wishes for the New Year to Mrs. Muir and the children and tell Mrs. M. that my juveniles accept the invitation to pay a day's visit to Martinez in cherry time with enthusiasm.My visit with you will long remain a landmark for me.Yours devotedlyC.
