[Jeanne C. Carr]
they will go on Monoward for Tahoe. I mean to set some stakes in a doz. glaciers and gather some arithamtic for clothing my thoughts.
I hope you will not allow old H. [o]ir his picture agent, Houseworth to so gobble and bewool poor Agassiz that I will not see him.
Remember me always to the Dr. and the boys and to Mrs. Moore, and I am ever yours,
I will return to the Valley in about a week if I don't get over deep in a crevass.
Later. Yours of Monday ever has just come. I am glad your boy is so soon to feel mother home and its blessings. I hope to meet Torrey although I will push ice ward as before but May get back in time. I will enjoy Agassiz, and Tyndall even more. I’m sorry for poor Stoddard, tell him come.
I’ll see Mrs. H. perhaps this eve and deliver your message.
