Emily [O. Pelton]
as if she were in her ripe rosy teens, & she looks about her with her bright blue eyes as if eager to know what kind of world she had arrived in. After a little you must come & see us in our quiet home. I was glad to hear from you after so long a silence I supposed you had vanished with your Carr cousin among the Couifers of Washington. I hope however that you will enjoy your old employment & friends in Yuba County. Remember me to the Knoxes & tell them that I will gladly give their scholars that lecturewe spoke of long ago whenever I have the time & good fortune to find myself at Brownsville. Remember me also to your friends in Strawberry Valley at whose house I spent so pleasant a time years ago. Let me hear from you often & believe me ever truly your friendJohn Muir.
