I suppose you enjoy the practice of your profession the aches & arts of poor humanity is an immense field. Yet it seems hard that anyone should be depr[illegible]ded of their freedom to so great an extent as Doctors are by being made special waiters at everybodys call – I could use the small amount of money I loaned you long ago, to advantage if you can find it convenient to send it by express. Still I dont wish you to give yourself any real trouble about it. The sun beams warmly on our beautiful bay & all the gardens are in bloom. I send you a couple of nespapers [illegible]ting letters of mine that I fancied you might care to see. With kindest regards to your wife I am Cordially yours John Muir ———— 63
