David [Gilrye Muir]
At Pat Delaneys ranch near La Grange [Stanislans Co’ Cala?] Nov’ 15th 69Dear Bro David Yours of Oct’ 8th & 21st were rec’d some weeks ago I send here with, a bill of exchange for $.290 instead of $500 as I first proposed because I think from the tenor of your letter that this change will make no mat- erial difference to you. I have about $450 [more?] that I was not using, but I told [illegible] D[illegible] & Thos’ [Eagleson?] in whose hands it now is to retain it a while longer if they wished to do so I start tomorrow for the mount- ains again; Yo Semite via Pino blanco Coulterville & Hardings mill I want to study the [illegible] climate & botany I know that looking from the business standpoint you now occupy you will say that I am silly & i[illegible]dent
