You need not think that I feel Yosemite to be all in all, but more of this when you come. I am going to send you with this a few facts & thoughts that I gathered concerning 20 Hill Hollow wh I want to publish if you think you can med them & make them into a lawful article fit for outsiders Plant gold is fading from Cal' faster than did her [illegible]aser gold, & I wanted to save the memory of that wh is laid upon Twenty Hills. Also I will now send some thoughts that happened to get for poor presented twice damned Coyote. If you think any body will believe them, have them published. Last mail I sent you some manuscript about bears & storms wh you will believe if no one else will. An account of one of my preliminary rambles among the glacier beds was published in the daily Tribune of New York Dec' 9th. Have you seen it If you have call old Mr Stebbins attention to it. He will read with pleasure,Where is the old friend. I have not heard from for a long time Remember me to the Doctor & the boys & all my friends Yours etc John Muir 00569
