In going to take your painter boys with me into one of my best sanctums on your recommendation for holiness, Emerson has sent me a profound little book styled The Growth of the Mind by Reed. Do you know it. It is full of fountain truth. Im glad your boys are safely back. Perhaps Ned & I may try that Andes field together. I would write to Mrs Moore but will wait untill she is better. Tell her the cascades & monntings of upper Hetch Hetch Hetch Hetch!!! I hope I may see you a few days soon I had a pretty letter from old Dr Torrey, & from Gray I have heard three or four times. I am ever cordially yrs John Muir
