Bidwell PapersBancroft LibraryMartinez, May. 7, 1896.My dear General.I sent on your statement to Sargent cutting it down a little, & he has received it & says in reply. "The information about General Bidwell & his crossing the Sierra I will certainly refer to in the Silva".The election of another president is drawing nigh & I hope & trust the hard crushing times of the last years will soon pass away & that you & everybody will speedily be better off.Remember me to your noble wife. How many charming memories of the Shasta & Chico days spent with you linger with me brightening & irradiating the auld lang syne, as we Scotch say.With kindest regards GeneralI am ever Your friendJohn Muir
