[Robert Underwood] Johnson
(85) Martinez, May 7th, 1908.
Dear Mr. Johnson:
I'm glad you're home and that you had a good rich time.
I'll take your letter with me on the Yosemite trip and hopefully deliver your message, suggestions etc.
I leave New York May 29th on the Gaelio, and hope to get at least a glimpse of you as I sail as I sail. I think I told you that I am going with Sargent across Asia by the Russian road, through Siberia and Manchuria to Peking; thence to Japan, Java, and Manilla - to look at trees rocks etc.
I did not forget Mrs. Tully's Prairie Girl book, It is a charming picture of child-life in the old West. But after reading Julian Hawthorn's review I thought anything I could say might do less good than harm.
Remember me to all your family and present my sincere congratulations to Mr. Buel on His marriage.
1903 May 7
