Dear Muir-

Since our unsuccessful attempt at meeting several weeks ago I have been on the jump from north to south. 3 times to Shasta now that the country is drying up I think of taking a rest. and could come to you for a day any time next week that would be most convenient to you (after 5th [illegible]) I am greatly exercised over the ["Manganitas"?] shall be able yet to do some serious revision. Even our commonest species are wrongly referred in books and will have to be renamed._ I concluded that we do

not have Asclestopyles [illegible] HRK which comes originally from Mexico. and so our commonest species will be A. Manganita [illegible] besides this is another common foot hill species which has been confounded with A. glance [illegible] but is very distinct and will be A. [bidceda?] Parry! What I now want particularly to see (growing) is A. Glaca. which comes from the Mt. Diabolo region & farther south_

I shall read a paper at [?] in this subject some meeting this month. By the way do you hear anything of the fun they get up ridiculing the new administration some lively meetings occasionally I met the other day your friend Major Dane about to sail for New Zealand & Australia

Are you getting rich & proud? in the ranch. When is that book coming out? Mrs P. desires regard to yourself & family & to Strenzels [illegible] !

Yours truly C.C. Parry
