[2]it for I wanted your autograph in a book of my own.You told me when I returned to Ross or S. F. that if I would send one, I chose "Yosemite," and put an inside wrapper on it addressed to me that you would write me "a something" on the fly leaf.Now I am back at sea level, sighing still for Yosemite, and I have my book, but write this first to know if you are at home, or whether you went to Alaska and have not yet returned.I am going to ask the favor of an answer to this as soon as you do return, and have a chance to open your mail, and then I will send the book to you, already for return shipment.If I am at all clear to you
