Francis W. Halsey,

Dear Sir:

I heartily thank you for your very kind review of "Our National Parks," which doubtless will direct many readers to the book. I'm glad you called attention to blessed LeConte. Herewith I send copy of Cal[ifornia] Univ[ersity] Magazine containing an excellent likeness, and my reminiscences of him and sketches of his work. Also for invitation to the column of the N.Y. Times Sat. Review of Books.

Sincerely yours,
J. M.02890
