How about some day the early part of next week,say Tuesday or Wednesday ? If this is agreeable to you kindly drop me a note a few days ahead so that I will notify Keith and be prepared to guide you around Palo Alto and San Mateo.Wife and I have been reading "Mountains in California",by John Muir Found it exceedingly interesting. I have clipped from this book a column of the Water Ouzel, for December No. which I think will interest childrenas well as grown folk. I am sorry not to be able to illustrate the short article,I am also sorry that your book was not better illustrated,but of that we will talk at greater length when you come down our way.Yours very truly,[illegible]01878
