this date. Every cordially yrs. John MuirRemember me to your Sister and the General. The glacial phenomena are most eloquently telling. The punctuation is as Mr. Muir made it, and I leave it to Dr. Bade’ to properly place it. We are searching for Mr. Muir’s letters to General Bidwell, and will forward copies of some when found. As I have reported heretofore, my husband tied his letters in bundles convenient to handle, which have to be untied, and Mr. Muir’s, segregated. In these bundles, or packages, are letters of great value to us, but hundreds of packages, in many boxes, have to be examined to find what we wish. Annie E. K. Bidwell 00860
