Mrs. [Jeanne C.] Carr
& breaded by Hutch' - gave must of his time to me. I was sorry that his time was so meanly measured & bounded. He is a most cordial lover of purity & truth but the angular factiness of his pursuits have kept him at too cold a distance from the spirit world. I know that Mrs Moore has given you ice in abundance though even Yosemite glaciers might melt in the warmth of her laughter & sunshine. She handles glacial periods like an Agassiz & has discovered a Hetch Hetchy period that is her own Dont you believe all she tells you about the walk & the dark & the dust of Indian Canon I want to get Daggetts address. I will begin my long mountain excursions soon for the snow is mostly gone from the high meadows I have been guiding a few parties & will take a few more if they are of the right kind, but I want my mind kept free & sensitive to all influences excepting human business I have ten horses but another man takes charge of them & I am all free. I need a talk with you more than ever before. Mrs Hutchings is always kind to me, & the clearness of her views on all spiritual things is very extraordinary
