physician. And as you know these California mountains so thoroughly, you may be able to give me suggestions about desirable mountain places, when you are down this way.I cannot tell you how much I appreciate your kindness in offering to call and give me the benefit of your experience. I wrote to your daughter, as you advised and await her reply with much interest. The lack of good accommodations would not disturb me if the surroundings were not too desolate and there was good wholesome food to be had and a comfortable bed. I care more for natural advantage than modern conveniences, but as I must go alone, I prefer a place not too dreary for continued peace of mind.With more gratitude than I can express I am sincerely yours,Mary Beal
