[Melville B.] Anderson


[May, 1903]

Dear Mr Anderson

My girls are getting up a little camping party of 8 or 10 & they would like your boys to join it. The party will leave the city May 16th for Hazel Green, Crocker Sugar Pines, Tuolumne Big Trees, Hetch Hetchy & the upper rim of Yosemite, returning to the city June 20th. It will be a good free trip. They would like to know soon as possible whether the boys can go. I'm going to Siberia etc starting immediately after the president's Yosemite trip. Why not go yourself? The Sierra forests would do



your a whole balmy mountain of good Hoping you are now strong as every I am

faithfully yours


[Martinez, Calif.]
