[Jeanne C.] Carr
Yosemite Valley June 3d 1875Dear Mrs Carr, Where are you? Lost in conventions electing womens rights & fights & buried beneath many a load of musty granger hay You always seem inaccess= =able to me, as if you were in a crowd, & even when I write, my written words seem to be heard by Mary that I do not like I wish some of your predictions given in your last may come true like the first you made long ago Yet some-how it seems hardly likely that you will ever be sufficiently free, for your labors multiply from year to year. Yet who knows. I found poor [ Larnous?] grove as you directed The upper end of the Valley seems fairly silent & empty without him. Keith got fine sketches & I found new beauties & truths of all kinds. Mack & [illegible] will tell you all. I send you my buttonhole plume Farewell
1875 June 3
