[Helen Lukens Jones]
you had better offer your sketch. The main points for biographical sketches anyone may have obtained from the encyclopedias. The Century published a sketch of me 10 or 15 yrs ago. Self Culture & The Overland 2 or 3 yrs ago, McClure is about to publish a sketch by Stannard Ray Baker- But yours will probably differ a good deal from all them- & no doubt you can do something with it.
Remember me to your father & mother & to charming Lottie & her brother, & with many thanks for the large number of fine photographs you sent me, believe me
Ever sincerely yours
[Martinez, Calif. ?]
