Thanking mo for 150 Photos Others previous to this are lostSierra Nevada & San Gabriel MtsMartinez, Oct. 18, 1895Reproduced from the original in the Henry E. Huntington Library and Art Gallery for reference only. Permission necessary for reproductionMy dear Mr Lukens,Your kind letter & generous package of photographs arrived safely & have thus placed me deeper than ever in your debt. I knew that north Tuolumne country in a general way--knew that its glacial phenomena were on a grand scale & especially heavy but the details you give me in the pictures & letter are very interesting & make me wish I had played truant a week or two longer & gone with you. Anyhow I'm going to Pasadena to hear your story unless you come here soon. I was afraid the little rain we had in the lowlands might work you harm in the mountains as a violent storm though on the other hand I felt pretty confident in your mountain craft for all storms are kindly when
