[Emily Pelton] Wilson
March 18, 1902.
Dear Mrs. Wilson;
I send by post today two books which I hope yon will read as two long letters from me. I have three or four others to write should I live long enough, and when one writes books letter writing is sure to be sadly neglected.
I was glad to hear from you direct through Wanda. I'm fairly stupid with book work, but nevertheless I'll try to visit you the next time I'm in Oakland. How fast the years have sped since last we met. Remember me to Mr. Wilson and our Forbestown friends.
Wanda called on me in Oakland when I was living since 1894.
The coming spring and summer weather will I hope renew your husband’s health.He died in 1904.
Come and see when you can and believe me She visited the muir in martiney in 1905.
Ever sincerely yours
1902 Mar 18
