[First draft of letters, in note-book #59] (63)

Martinez, Oct. 21, 1900.

Mr. Winfield H. Dora,

My dear Sir:

I would gladly comply with your wishes for the Forestry number of the California University Magazine if I could. But so many obligations are pressing just now it will be impossible for me to write such an article at present, or for some time to come. On account of a lot of miserable interruptions work has accumulated, and I make but slow progress in getting it off my hands. So many other writers, too, are now interested in forest matters I shall not be missed. Anyhow I could scarcely write anything new if I should write on forestry.

With best wishes,

Very truly yours,

J. M.



Martinez [Calif.]
