[E. H.] Harriman


[June 1904]

Dear Mr Harriman. I have been anxious to see you ever since I got home, of course I want to tell you something of what I saw in Russia, Siberia, Manchuria, India, Egypt, Australia, New Zealand & the Philippines. These travel things however will keep indefinitely. But sending me that comforting cable message from Salt Lake to make everything easy on the crowded Siberia was mighty good & kind of you & I want to thank you for it face to face. Above all I want to thank you for the letter you sent after me from your sick bed, which reached me at Moscow on my return from Crimea & the Caucasus. That letter full of thoughtful care for me when you were in the midst of infinite mortal trouble was heart-touching. I'll never forget it & shall always be faithfully yours J.M.



[Martinez, Calif.]
