Robin Hood [James S. Merriam]
April 16th, 1903.
Mr Robin Hood
209 W 56th Street
New York, N.Y.
Dear and blessed Robin:-
Your long, delightful, breezey, woodsey, witty letter charmed us all. None but Robin could have sent such a breeze of pure wildness out of 56th Street or any other street. it wafted us all up into the fragrant exhilarating Kaweah Sequoia Sierra again.
We are glad you liked the few pictures
we sent you. Helen says that she is going to sit for a picture especially for you the next time she is in San Francisco. We are delighted to learn that we are to see Clint Hart again this summer. In a recent letter he said that he expected to be in San Francisco about the 14th of May. That is the very day that I expect to leave S.F. for Yosemite with the President. and on the 18th or 19[th?] start
