[William Keith]



Martinez Oct 7/07

Dear Willie I'm glad you have decided to take a breath of mountain air Its what we both need. I'll not be able to get away Thursday as you propose on account of a couple of friends from the east coming to visit me Wednesday or Thursday, but they will not detain me more than a day or two.
If we can get horses at Crocker's I think we should take a short camping trip with a tent & man to look after the horses.
I'll let you know the day I can start & will
