[in margin: 951] 00776 Indianapolis Feb. 26th 1878 232 N. Ala. St.My Dear Mr Muir, Very grateful are we for your sweet story, sketch a history of your lovable little friend the Water Ouzel. We have all read it more than once and some parts many times, so that were we to meet him we should not need an introduction. Would that we could meet him in the company of [underlined: his] friend – and ours! We recognized John Lamon in the Lachelor friend. How fresh – how wonderful your life seems among the flowers – the birds and the waterfalls, of your own Yosemite.
