I was left in charge here last fall when Mr Hutchings left for Washington to attend to his land claims, & as he has not returned I cannot leave the valley, though I would be so happy to meet you; but I will now be here all summer & you must of course see Yo[illegible] I will undertake to guide [illegible] to all the most holy nooks [illegible] in rock & grove & to stand points where you will hear the waters in there most divine harmonies This is a costly trip as most people make it but if you can come I will send you directions etc that will make your expenses quite hearable I believe I told you that Dr Carr was now Prof' in the university of this state I have not seen the Dr or Mrs Carr yet
