[Theodore P.] Lukens
glad I am to speak on Forestry at Denver, the August snow storm he & I enjoyed in Tuoloumne Meadows [in margin: cone from pine tree on lot near Ladds]
Martinez Aug. 16/01
My dear Mr Lukens.
I am glad to see that you are to be one of the speakers on forestry affairs at Denver this month - good luck to you.
I have just returned from the Tuolumne Meadows & the Sierra Club outing. About 125 were gathered around the Campfire & we had a grand time. Would that you had been with us. I often spoke of the fine August snow-storm we enjoyed during my visit with you & the Crows.
The cone you sent me while I was away is a small immature specimen of the Sabine pine - With kind regards to Mrs Lukens, Mrs Jones & the children I am ever Yours
