Mrs. Will F. Lake 1415 Grand Fort Worth,
My dear Mrs. Lake:-
As I have been away from town I was not able till Monday last to go to Father Nolan's, and determine what that tree was. It proved to be Quercus Macrocarpa, or Mossy-cup Oak. It is also called Bur Oak. It is a beautiful tree, and one that grows in time to be 16a feet high with a trunk diameter of 8 feet.
I am sorry that on account of being away, I was not able to avail myself of the pleasure of your kind invitation to go out to that pond before it was drained.
With very kind regards and good wishes, I am
Cordially yours, A Ruth.
