calities of the groups of Sequoria gigantia, & your opinion that the tree had its origin near or at its present habitat, Not from migrations; & that the genus was sure to be obliterated, more from special causes than from any natural agencies. now, if you have had occaion to modify your views on this subject I wish you to let me know during the present week as my paper will be sent to Sacramento on Saturday or Sunday next, to be forwarded to the Sec. & reaad by on Parkinson as I can't afford to attend the convention this season. Should it so happen that I can retain it a few days longer, I will bring the document up & set you to target shooting at its mucleus; of course, the subject is too vast & intricate to be disposed of tru one paper, & I will go on to commence others on the same subject, as may may often. With many kind regards to the entire family I amVery truly YoursW.P. Gibbons.02079
