[C. Hart] Merriam
June 4, 1904.
Dear Dr. Merriam:-
I got home a week ago and am very anxious to see you. I hope you are coming west this year. I had a grand time with the President. Apart from his office he is a grand noble man. I was surprised to find he knew so much natural history. I had a glorious time in India, Australia etc. but it is useless to try to tell anything about it in a letter. I am too full to write. Therefore come on. The girls are already pulling me off into the wilderness and as I like both them and the wilderness I let 'em. We start tonight for the Grand Canon, we will be home again in a week or ten days. Will expect a letter from you by that time.
With love to all the family,
I am faithfully yours,
1904 Jun 04
