[Daniel Muir, Jr]
but would you not like to see & hear the winter grandeur of Yosemite. You may be blessed, but I am glorious “ [over?] a the ils o life [victorious?]” I suppose that you will be delivered from the chattering skeletons & [professors on Jan 1s?] well if so think of your sweetheart & of me locked up in an house not made with hands whose walls are a mile in height & beautiful as those of the New Jerusalem. I trust that you will be very successful in digging in the grim mines of disease & live to cure many a colic & “[sair breest?]” [illegible] you well [illegible] [illegible] [most?] cordially John Muir
1869 Dec 5
