Mch 28 1900
Thank you for the letter. We'll take a club in that cause, also. Thanks Heaven for the good turn of things about the Sequoias! I shall be glad to keep on the trail of these things, whenever I can see a chance to do any good; & will be grateful at any time for expert suggestion. Incredible as it may seem, I don't know everything!
But I want to serve this good country. If I go north next month to the Educational Commission meeting, it must be very hurriedly up & back; [&] I fear Martinez will be beyond me - tho' I shall try. We hope very earnestly that you'll get down here - & you know where to camp! Browne, of the Dial is here now, renewing my faith in man. He's a Sequoia, too!
Hastily but always Sincerely yours
Chas. F. Lummis
