herding sheep 1869 Near La Grange Sep 24/69Bro Dave, I have escaped the vindic- tive paws of the Pi-Ute Indians & grizzly bears, & safe upon the purple plains of Joaquin once more, - About the 1st of last June I sent a gold draft for $200 to Butler Broome & Clapp New York by Wells Fargo ex & have not rec'd any acknowledgement of its reception. If you have not sent a receipt please do so as soon as convenient , or if not heard from let me know that the matter may be settled before I leave California, I have about $500 - more than I require at present, which you may have if you wish it I have enjoyed a most divine piece of life among the snow peaks of the glorious Sierra Nevadas Botany geology & sketching have been my principal objects
