Yelm, W.T. Jan. 23rd, 89.John Muir.Martinez, CalFriend and whilom fellow-climber:Your most cordially welcome, genial and eloquent letter came to hand a few days since. I was “right down” glad to hear from you, and hope you will favor me more than this once in the way of correspondence. I was sincerely glad, too, to hear something about our companion du voyage cap a mountain, Keith, who, it appears from your letter, has labored arduously with brush and canvas to give further fame to our grand old Rainier.
