00901920 Valencia St. S. F. Tuesday P.M. [Apr. 1880]Dear [Louie?],I reached the city about four o clock. Visited the immortals Brown & Swett, & heard Prof Prostor’s [sun?] lecture. Slept last night at Swetts, & came out here this forenoon for my letters. Am going down town now to telegraph Dr Dwin[illegible], & visit the shears. I hope to get off tomorrow for Monterez. Write me at Swetts 1419 Taylor St. I am a little afraid there may be difficulty in getting Dwin[illegible] at the right hour through the puzzling tangle of trains & ferry all of which seem to be run on the hour[illegible] principles Had we not better engage two or three R[illegible] so as to make more reasonably sure of one. With love to father Mother & thee affectionately [illegible]
