& lecture [ time?], I suppose I will be called upon for two more addresses in San Francisco ere I make my annual Hegira to the woods. A few weeks ago I lectured at San Jose & Oakland. Im glad to hear of the general good health & welfare of our scattered & multiplied family. Of Katies returning health-, & Joannas – Remember me warmly to Mrs Galloway, tell her I will be in Wisconsin in two or three years, & hope to see her still surounded by her many affectionate friends – I was pleasantly surprised to notice the enclosed clipping today in the NY Tribune – I also read a notice of a book by Prof James Law of Cornell University, whom I used to play with, I met one of his scholars a short time ago Give my love to David & all your little big ones Ever very affectionately yrs John Muir
