[Annie] Wanda [Muir]
many strange looking rocks, & it was a grand sight to see the huge waves dash against them & jump up more than a hundred feet in the air in pure whtie foam. Thick & broad & [mossy?] wilder far & more beautiful than the Yosemite waterfalls. That was on Sunday & the wind was so strong that the sailors called it a "gale." I often thought of you when the sea was so beautiful & wild & wished you could be with me to see it. Some day you will I hope. You must write to me at Glacier Bay Alaska. Goodbye
Victoria, B. C[olumbia]
