[Henry Fairfield] Osborn
To Henry Fairfield[?] Osburn
Martinez, Cal. Apr.10, 1899
My dear Osborn
You will see by the enclosed clipping that Yosemite is ready for you. The snow fall on the mountains has been comparatively light this winter & the best time to visit the Valley will probably be early in May. I am invited to join an exploring party of Naturalists, Botanists, Geologists etc on a special steamer to leave Seattle the last week of May for Glacier Bay, Yakutat, Cooks Inlet & Kodiack, & if you can come for Yosemite not later than the middle of next month I may have the pleasure of the Sierra trip with you and still be in time for the Alaska trip. But before I can accept this tempting invitation to the Northern Glaciers I will wait to hear from you when our Yosemite excursion is to be. With best wishes & many happy recollections I am
very truly yours
