00628 [1872] Yosemite Oct 14thDear Mrs Carr, I cannot hear from you these are some souls perhaps that are never tired that can go steadily glad, always tuneful & songful like mountain water, not so weary hungry me This second time I come from the rocks for fresh supplies of the two breads but I find but one. I cannot hear from you. My last weeks were spent among the canons of the Hoffman range & the Cathedral Peak group E, of lake Tenaya. All gloriously rich in the written truths wh I am seeking I will now go to the wide rayed tributaries of Illilouette. & to Pohono, After wh I will mope about among the rim canons & rock forms of the valley as the weather permits
