avail ourselves of it. But Muir I am goin to back the business claims and get out for I havent many more years to live. I have worked hard enough and want to enjoy the short time left in travel & study. One of my greatest wishes is to be allowed to spend a little of that time in wandering with you through the grand mountains and caonns of our western coast: and as you & I are both going down this sunset slope of our lives. I realize that if I have to pleasure of your company I must hurry up. I dont know what kind of canons we are going to find in the "great beyond"With many thanks from both Frank and myself and many kind regards to your family in which Mrs Sellers joinsI remainYour sincere friendA H SellersMrs Sellers has just come in & read this letter which she says is all wrong - that she accepts your invitation & wants to go, but I tell her she must stay at home and take care of the "old man"
