Mrs. John Gill Lemon


Louie Strentzel Muir


(3) It [grows] regions a foot and one [ ] and studied the Sequoias, pines, firs etc. And on one of the trips my comrade husband discovered a fine new lily. A species not-here-before reported. It was a good find in its sunny mountain home. We hear that the big, perfect crowned Sequoia in Rob Roy Canon is not to be cut down. This will be good [word] news to your Father. I am sure, if he has not already heard of it. With best wishes always Yours Truly Mrs John Gill Lemmon
