[First draft of letter,in note-book]

[January, 1903].

Mr.Frank H.Scott,
The Cent[ury] Co.,
Union Sq., N.Y.

Dear Sir:

I am getting on very slowly with the little Yosemite book on account of so many other time-killing things. I had hoped to get it off my hands this winter or spring in time for fall publication, but now fear I shall not on account of so many other time-killing things pressing against me. Anyhow I'll let you know when it is done.
Thanking you for your kind interest in my work, I am,

Respectfully yours,


[Martinez, Calif.]
