[Jeanne C.] Carr
00735The first meeting I had with Mr Moore was at the lecture the other night He seemed immeasurably astonished of find me in so anti sequestered a condition, but in the meanwhile he is more changed than I for he seems semi crazy on literature as Mrs M is wholly doubly so on paint I will show your letter to Mr. Swett when he comes in who will doubtless be able to decipher the meaning of the heads & tails of your bodyless sentences Im sorry most of all for the destruction of the “Teacher” thus cutting off the only adequate outlet for your own thoughts – but hang it let them decapitate [in margin: & hang – they cannot hang Cassiope Ever Yrs Cordially John Muir]
