00906Sacramento Ap. 17, 1880Mr J[n?] Muir, My dear Sir:After leaving you I made close connections at Port Costa. In fact the “overland” was already in & ready to pass on the ferry boat. from there I reached home safely with the exception of having my umbrella suddenly [demoralized?] when getting out of the horse-car in Sacramento. While on the cars I had a good opportunity in the [illegible] storm to think of you & my own short-comings. I don’t believe I thanked you or expressed my admiration for the way you put me through from Alhambra to Martinez in
