Mrs. [Jeanne C.] Carr
19Yosemite Dec 6th 69Dear friend Mrs CarrI am feasting in the Lords Mountain house & what pen may write my blessings I am going to dwell here all winter magnificently "snowbound" just think of the grandeur of mountain winter in Yo-Semite would that you could enjoy it also I read your word of pencil upon the bridge below the Nevada & I thank you for it most devoutly No one nor all of the Lords blessings can enable me to exist without friends indeed — There is no snow in the valley, the ground is covered with the brown & yellow leaves of the oak & maple & their crisping & rustling make me think of the groves of Madison I have been wandering about
