[Margaret Hay Lunam]
Martinez, January, 17, 1895.Dear Cousin,I received your letter of the 22d of last month; also the copy of the Scotsman with the review of my book for which I thank you.I'm glad you find the book interesting. In it I have tried to describe & explain what a traveler would see for himself if he were to come here & go over the ranges & through the forests as I have done. We are having heavy rains this winter. It is raining just now & the streams are roaring, not so loud though as the winds & waves among the Dunbar rocks. I should greatly enjoy a grand storm there. I remember seeing the waves dashing over the harbor once or twice when I was a boy & as you say01923
