[Charles Sprague] Sargent
[First draft of letter, in note-book]
[Charles Sprague Sargent]
March 12, ‘03.
I wrote you 8 or 10 days [ago] that I would leave all and follow you through the wilds of civilization, if you would guide and personally conduct, etc. Now, I am anxious to know the date of sailing, and whether without deranging your plans the date might be in say the first week in June instead of last of May, as in one of your letters you proposed, because an influential man from Washington] wants to make a trip into the Sierra with me, and I might be able to do some forest good in talking freely around the campfire. Will you therefore telegraph the date, so I may know just how much time I have?
Ever faithfully yours,
1903 Mar 12
