Mrs. [Jeanne C.] Carr
 Two miles below La Grange Oct' 3d 69 -Dear friend Mrs Carr My summer in the third heaven of the Sierra is past. I am again in the smooth open world of plains. I read three of your eight notes which for mount- ain correspondence is about as might be expected. I learned by a San Francisco newspaper that Dr Carr had accepted a Prof Ship in the University & Prof' Butler told me about a month ago that he had gone to Madison to fetch his Cabinet etc Therefore know that you are making a fixed home & that you will yet see the mts & the Joaquin plains. We were camped within a mile or two of the Yo Semite north wall for three weeks I used to go to the North dome or Jo Sem falls most every day to sketch & to listen to the waters One day I went down into the valley by that canon opposite HutchingsMy post office is Snelling as before Oct 3. 1869.#50
