Wisconsin. I have also re-written the autobiographical notes dictated at Harriman's Pelican Lodge on Klamath Lake two years ago, but that seems to he an endless job and, if completed at all, will a lot of Yosemite material into a handbook for travelers, which ought to have been written long ago.So you see I am fairly busy, and precious few trips will I be able to make this summer, although I took Professor Osborn and family into the Yosemite for a few days, and Mr. Hooker and his party on a short trip to the Grand Canyon.Are you coming west this year? It would be delightful to see you once more.I often think of the misery of Mr. Burroughs and his physician caused by our revels in Burns’ poems, reciting verse about in the resonant board chamber whose walls transmitted every one of the blessed words to the sleepy and unwilling ears of John, much to the distress of Miss Barus. Fun to us, but death and broken slumbers to Oom John.With all best wishes, my dear Browne, and many warmly cherished memories, I am,Ever faithfully your friend,[illegible]To Francis F. Browne, Editor,The Dial,Chicago, 111.
