Oakland, June 8 -'86
Dear friend John,
It is mroe than kind for you to remember me, and I appreciate it fully, sending you a "thank you" for every separate and in- dividual cherry. I would have acknowledged sooner, but was in the mixed -up- a-tive-ness of getting Hen- ry off in the countr. (he had been very sick again,) and then had a thousand things at home and in the library to see to, at once. This is my first free moment before 10 P.M. o'nights, at which time, or by which time, I haven't
usually sense enough left to hold a pen.
I do wish you could find time to drop in and see me, if only to put your face in at the door and say 'hail and farewell'. I know you do come down occasionally, for I hear of you. Hope wife and babes are well. Love to them.
Ever and truly yours,
1886 Jun 8
