Sarah [Muir Galloway]
Yosemite Valley May 26th 1873Dear sister Sarah I have just time to say that I hope you all are happy & that I hope to escape from all these rocks & glaciers in after years so that I may rest amogst you. Yet I love the mountains with a stronger love every year. I have some weeks of difficult work among glaciers that I discovered last year but will not commence it for a month or so until the deepest snow melts. I hope sometime this season to make an excursion along the range north & south to lake Tahoe & to Kings River Canon
1873 May 26
