Martinez, Oct. 21, 1900.
My dear Mr. Slifer:
The birch specimens from Cook Inlet came a week or two ago. The bark is a fine large piece, and the leaves and flowers, which l sent to Prof. Sargent for the Arnold Arboretum, are just what were wanted. I am very much obliged to you, and Prof. Sargent will be delighted, it is so hard to get such specimens in season from those remote places.
I congratulate you on your restoration to health, your experiences in the Northland, and on your success in making a way into the life work you have chosen.
And now, with best wishes,
Very truly yours,
1900 Oct 21
