[3]you and I am sure you will sympathize with us in our desire to turn the minds and hearts of Californians toward their great and good men and their beautiful country.Professor Bradley and your friend Miss Graydon are to write the principal articles, and I with Mr. Keith and others of your friend's help, am to have a little say as a student. We are to have the new photographs of the Sierras that Mr. Le Conte took this summer.Were it not too presumptious we would ask for a letter, a few lines written in the essay spirit from you. May I suggest such a thing? Among your papers is there not something short and unpublished that we may have?Most cordially yours Mary Bell.
