30th Nov., 1899.
MY DEAR MOTHER, (Mrs. Leggett.)
Nothing new — except Madame Calvé's visit. She is a great woman. I wish I saw more of her. It is a grand sight to see a giant pine struggling against a cyclone. Is it not?
I leave here tonight. These lines in haste as A__ is waiting. Mrs. Adams is kind as usual. Margot doing splendidly. Will write more from California.
With all love to Frankincense,
Ever your son,
