Mr. [illegible]No.2well as to its usefulness. Your note to General Bidwell was especially useful. I found that he was staying over simply to see me, thinking you would come too. Shinn and I had a most interesting interview with him, and he is to give us a paper by the assistance of a stenographer and of Mrs. Bidwell, with whom I need hardly say I fell in love at once. I hope very much that we shall see them in New York in the Fall. General Bidwell is an admirable man in every respect, and the one man that could not be omitted from this series.With kindest t regards toMrs. Muir,Sincerely yours,[illegible](Dictated)ToMr. John Muir,Martinez, Cal.[illegible]
