I also read "Boyhood & Youth" & have wondered whether there was some other book between that, & the travels through California, for it stops too abruptly, we want to know more of thy life & of thy parents, & others of the family, who lived & toiled to make the home happy before you had to go forth into the busy world.

Thy friend

Fannie P. Carter.
