“Uncle, I’m crazy to see San Francisco,” said Frank.
“Well, it’s a good deal changed from the days of the Forty-Niners,” said Mr. Temple, smiling. “You may have your hopes too high, and may be disappointed.”
“Oh, come now, father,” said Bob. “If you’re going to be there only a week, it’ll be worth while for us.”
“Well, that’s the length of time I planned to stay,” said Mr. Temple, thoughtfully. “But I’ll be pretty busy while I’m there. Do you boys feel you can keep out of mischief if left to yourselves?”
Mr. Hampton interrupted.
“I reckon they can, Temple,” he said. “They saved the day for me. I’m beginning to think they are a pretty self-reliant lot. If you can see your way to doing so, take them along. The trip will be a fine experience.”
“All right, boys,” said Mr. Temple. “But you’ll have to leave your airplane. If you are going to see San Francisco, you can’t do it very well by airplane. And, anyhow, I wouldn’t care to see you tackle the Rockies.”
“All right, father,” agreed Bob. “We’ll be too busy seeing the sights to want the plane, anyhow. When do we start?”
“In two days,” said his father.
With this we take leave of the three chums, whose adventures on the Mexican border have come to so successful a conclusion. But in the next story of “The Radio Boys on Secret Service Duty” we shall follow their further adventures after they reach the city by the Golden Gate—adventures fully as thrilling as those on the Mexican border, in which they become drawn into the plots of an international gang of smugglers engaged in bringing Chinese coolies into the United States in defiance of the Exclusion Laws.
