[Jeanne C.] Carr
[Letter copied from typewritten, bound set, as this letter is missing in mounted series of letters to Mrs. Carr]
Sep. 13, '72.
Dear Mrs. Carr:
Yours of Aug. 23rd is rec’d. Le Conte writes me that Agassiz will not come to the Valley.
I just got down last evening from a fifteen day ramble in the basins of Illilouette and Pohono and start again in an hour for the summit glaciers to see some canyons and to examine the stakes I planted in the ice a month ago.
I would like to come down to see Ag[assiz], but now is my harvest of rocks, and I cannot spare the time.
I shall work in the outer mountains incessantly until the coming of the snow...
[Rest of letter cut from page]
Love to all.
