[Jeanne C.] Carr
920 Valencia St.,
S. F. Apr. 24th, 1869.
Dear Mr. Carr:
I enclose at last the name of the big Orange book. Either Paqot & Co. or Gregoire & Co. will import it for Mr. Carr at the price he named - for less if intended for the library.
I thought you would have been to make at least one of your small business like calls to see me ere this, but I suppose the office and conventions and your farm leave you precious little time. Your days all go by in little beats and bits while you move so fast you are nearly invisible.
Had a moments talk with the Doctor. Am glad he is looking so much like himself again. The summer is coming. Don't know how it will be spent.
Did you hear the Butlers the other day, glassy leaves tilted at all [angles].
1869 Apr 24
