[Charles Sprague] Sargent
Martinez, Cal. Nov 11, 1900
My dear Professor Sargent.
I'm sorry this season has not been fruitful in haws, preventing the speedy ending of the already long drawn out Crataegus chapter of your book But in spite of the short crop of haws & the [Rome?] beds & loneliness you must have had a grand trip. Anyhow You'll get no pity from me as long as you are free to wander in the glorious Eastern forests. About how many more years are you going to give to Crataegus? You seem to count on longevity rivaling Sequoia.
