Ranchito del Fuente Dec 30. 1890 Dear Mrs. Muir: Since living in Los Angeles Co. and becoming interested in Horticulture it has been on my mind to write you. In the first place remembering your eminent Father and [the] great book. He was [doing] as early as our school days in Benicia and feeling a desire to once more in your place; and also to learn if it were possible to procure a few apple trees of Golden Russet variety. We used to buy them in Oakland from a dealer who always purchased from your father. I am improving [layer] Rancher here and making a fine place. Have already one hundred and fifty acres in [english] walnuts. [While] I have grapes in varieties. [Pampus]. [Pears], Lemons, Persimmons, Pomegranates, etc. etc. Is there a nursery [ ] with [your] beautiful place from which I can obtain the trees I mentioned? If you ever come to [ ] Cal. Be sure a visit us. I shall be most happy to renew the acquaintance of long ago. With [ ] & best wishes I am Very Truly Hattie N. Russell Strong
