Louie, Wanda & Helen
June 16 1899
Dear Louie Wanda & Helen:.
I wrote two days ago & I suppose you will get this at the same time as the other. We had the Governor at dinner & a society affair afterward that looked queer in the wilderness. This eve we are to have a reception at the Governors & tomorrow we sail for Yakutat Bay Thence to Prince William Sound & Cooks Inlet etc. We were at the Hot Springs yesterday 15 miles from here amid lovely scenery. The Topeka arrived last eve & sails in an hour or so. I met Professor Moses & his wife on the wharf & then a lot of Berkeley people besides. Then the Raymond agent who introduced a lot of people to whom I lectured in the street The thing was like a revival meeting. The weather is wondrous fine & all goes well I regret not having a letter forwarded here. as I long for a word of your welfare. Remember me to Maggie I hope she stands the hot weather.
Ever Yours Heaven keep you, darlings
