During meals at home my little girls make me tell stories, many of them very long, continued from day to day for a month or two. Did I send you my girls' pictures? If not I will. Will you be likely to come again to our side the continent? how I should enjoy your visit. To think of little Henry an Alderman! I am glad that you are all well & all together [Greek?] & [illegible] holds you in health I read & read your Butler family with much interest & ought to have said so & thanked you long ago. With love to Mrs. Butler & Henry James the girls & thee old friendI am ever Your friend John Muir
