June Monday 24, 1895 Went to the city to attend a director’s meeting of the Sierra Club. Present McCallister, LeConte, [Libby], Bradley, & Sanger. Took Sanger & Bradley to lunch. Very little business done at the meeting. The club seems to be losing ground. Mr. Solomons came in & talked of an excursion across the headwater of the Kings River. His article in our last bulletin was bad.

Tuesday 25 Cool at last. Never before noticed so long a spell of hot north wind.

Wednesday 26 Cool. A fine breeze from the sea. Apricots being shipped.

Thursday 27 Pleasantly cool with fog winds from the sea. Prof. Bradley of State University came up this morning to pay us a visit & talk over Sierra Club affairs. The getting up of club excursions into the Sierra, the best mountain we could think of. Rode up to the Swetts. He seemed to be anxious to know how I learned to write & we had a pleasant chat on literary matters.
