General [John Bidwell]
what its papers on the war did for war history & warriors. I took Mr. Johnston into Yosemite & the high Sierra where as you will readily believe we encountered some very fine wildness which I hope will flavor the Century for centuries to come. We have just returned from these excursions. Mr. Johnson expects to be in Chico in about a week from this date - to see you & I trust that nothing may intervene to previent your meeting. Thanks General for your prompt reply to my telegram & kind invitation. But I am far behind with my writing & fear I will not be able to accept. Ever since our last meeting at the Occidental I have been a happier man in seeing Mrs Bidwell well again & as far above the danger that threatened here health as any of us mortals ever are.Ever Cordially your friend John Muir
