Chas. H. Allen
San Jose, Oct. 7. 1894
I have "lived over" our visit many times, and always with a pleasant remembrance of our host who "spake by the record, Sir:" and his [illegible]able lady, to say nothing of the "School ma'am".
Now, what I want to know is,--when are you going to get so "tired of writing" that you will come and spend a few days with us? You know, Mt. Hamilton is in sight and I have not forgotten your promise.
I cannot mail you that book, "The [Sillen?] Gun," but will either hold it until you come, or bring it to S. F. and leave it where you can get it. I want to have you read it, for I know you will enjoy it. In default of that I send you "Shasta Spring," simply to ask you if you ever took "carbonic gases" in this form before? All are well, and we'uns send kindly greetings to you'uns.
Chas. H. Allen
San Jose, [Calif]
