My dear Canby:
I haven't the slightest idea what Mellichamp is talking about beyond the fact that it must be some article in Garden and Forest. If he can let us know what the subject is perhaps I can help him. I am glad he is having a good time with Muir.
You complain that I have "dried up". Don't worry. In a short time now you will hear from me probably much more frequently than you will care to. I have been very busy with various matters lately, including descriptions of some Florida Crataeguses, etc., but in a few days I shall get to work in earnest on the northern species.
We have had fine rains at last and the country looks splendidly but there is no hay crop in this part of the world.
