[letterhead]top floor over John Howell's Book Shop. I would hardly expect you to know of my place as yet since I have only been established about 8 months.A gallery devoted exclusively to the Exhibition of Fine Prints must necessarily be something of a cross between an art museum & a business but I trust that my [venture?] will meet with the approval of those on the coast who care for the fine things of art.Mr. Pennell & myself desire your cooperation [illegible] the extent of writing an Introduction to the [catalogue?] which I will print & distribute. This catalogue will be rather a nice thing [illegible] privately printed. We thought you might [be?] willing to write such an Introduction [about?] the Yosemite and Grand Canyon things [illegible]ially and Mr. Pennell's art generally.05777
