“She sent him a list of names for him to use in his new book. Last week, she says that she had sent him a booklet containing names of Penwomen. She also had the pleasure of telling everyone at her branch, about our visit. They were interested in hearing about him, Mrs. Markham, and his library. She askes [sic] him about his health and about Virgil. Now she is at their mountain cabin near Santa Cruz. Her children love to visit Villa Montalvo at Saratoga. And that Senator Phelan donated that as a park to the San Francisco Art Association. To her surprise, there is a bronze bust of Mr. Markham, John Muir, and Joaquin Miller. Also her daughter sent her regards to Mr. and Mrs. Markham. Then she askes [sic] if Virgil could please return the poems from the last Montalvo contest” [WC]
