[Charles F.] Lummis
Martinez, California June 11, 1895
My dear Mr Lummis,
Thanks for the Land of Sunshine. Please find enclosed subscription for the same for one year.
I have read your little plucky magazine & like it. It has the ring & look of true literary metal. So has your letter to me, & I doubt not you will be successful. You have a grand field & I am sure that with honest purpose & hard work you must gain the day.
I thank you for your kind words about my little book & for asking me to work for sunshine. I wish I could write as quickly & easily as most writers then you would surely goet more from me than you want. But I am slow & awkward & write but little still I'll try to give you something ere long.
Ever Cordailly Yours
1895 Jun 11
