[4]I am eager to see your Yosemite book, the Atlantic articles have been delightful, so filled with your big heart and your keenest seeing of things. I love your always seeing the funny side too. Vernon says to send his warmest greetings and to say he will visit soon.I want to hear from Helen, must write her as soon as I can. I hop most of the day, but I hop merrily. The university has given Vernon leave from December 1911 till Sept 1912, and he wants to go to the British Museum for part of it & wants us to go. Will you go too, if we make it? The babe sends a big hug and we our warmest love to you.Charlotte[1]Carmel, Thursday25th MayVer dearest friendI'll snatch these few minutes before Charlotte-Jean wakes for her broth to send you our thanks for your letter and our good wishes for the journey which we wish we might be taking with you, not that we want to go to South America with Jean, but that we want to be with you!And I must say the word South lures me. I hope some day, some where to get warm. We05021
