[Henry F.] Osborn
Dec. 29, 1904
My dear Mr Osborn:
Hearty congratulations on Virginia's marriage. How quick girls grow. My own two babes are already women, and to think of the boys in Princeton or nearly out of it.
I read your Century articles with great interest. You are in a grand work giving life to the beasts of the auld lang syne. You are succeeding admirably in a magnificent field.
I wish you had been with me on my long trip. I'm now trying to write another little book and so must stick to my desk in grim self-denial for a long time. Nevertheless I don't dispair of seeing you all ere many years go by in your beautiful Hudson woods. I look back in the meantime to the memorable visit I enjoyed at Wing-and-Wing with pure pleasure
With best wishes for the New Year and kindest regards to Mrs Osborn I am
