[Theodore P.] Lukens
the trees he speaks of are the big spruce 2.2 miles south of Port Townsend State of Wash. I remember a fallen tree at [Quillcene?] 425 feet in length, 350 ft to first limb, all were destroyed before he reached there
Martinez, Aug. 3/97
My dear Mr Lukens.
I thank you for the directions to the giant trees. It will go hard with me if I dont see them. I leave tomorrow or next day & look forward to a better trip than this which I hope to make with you ere long.
With best wishes to all
& love to Lottie
I am Yours truly
