Dear old friend

I have just arrived in Pasadena and find that you have remembered me by a copy of "Your Boyhood" days. You dear dear John. you cant think how pleased I am to have the book.



and I spent last summer East and just returned by way of Chico and Oakland.
Come and see your old time friend who thanks you so much for your remembrance.
With love and Christmas greetings from a sincere friend

Emily O Wilson


We shall so enjoy reading it. I am with Mrs Knox in her upstairs rooms and I hope you will find your way out to see us as soon as you come south.
It is a long time since you called here and found us away
You've been to South America, and I don't know where since then
