2incident!I must thank you for your generous proposal to send me copies of these books that are now forthcoming. I shall be only too glad of the opportunity of purchasing if only you will continue to produce, but I must confess that when the book bears upon its flyleaf your name in your hand it is enormously enhanced in value. You may be sure I will not forget.We are just beginning to enlarge our Camp out here by the addition of a room with a porch and a fire place, and a little more sleeping space. Unless the rains, now plainly promised, are too generous, we shall be done in a month, and then — anytime you want to exchange the sybaritic luxury of West Adams St. for the few crumbs of bread and small and homely comforts of our modest ranch we shall be able to give you common necessaries, and talk some, It will be a great delight to us to have you with us any time you can see your way comfortably to a call. Mrs. C. thinks she may be able to lure you out here by suggesting a call, and then keep you awhile; seeing that she never has had here the visit with you she longs for. But anyhow you know you'll be welcome here whenever or however you come.Sincerely YoursJ. E. Calkins04900
