[4]The Zuni River country is a part of the Painted Desert and is full of scattered wood & some logs. The Chaco, Chusea & Animas valleys in N.W. New Mex. are covered with scattered fossil wood and near the Escavada Wash there were lots of logs 2 and 3 feet in diameter I have marked these places on the maps, which you can keep & if you want more detailed notes will send them to be used as you like.Mrs. Bailey joins me in all good wishes and sincere regards,Very truly yours Vernon Bailey.[1] Jan. 10, 1909.[letterhead]Dear Mr. Muir:We were glad to get your good Christmas letter and glad to hear that Helen is improving tho still in the desert.
