[4]says the Sellers days were the best of the trip. He is getting rich selling lots of pictures, & is perhaps a trifle less moony & absurd than usual. Though suffering from lack of contact with fresh nature. He is making cash too quick to leave the studio, but is making charming paintings nevertheless. He also is drawing on the wealth of other freer and better daysAll the family remembers with pleasure your & the colonels visit years ago at the ranch & hope to see more of you when next you come to this side of the continent My kindest regards & remembrances to Mr Sellers and Frank. with more thanks for the fine pictures & congratulations on your return to health I am ever yours trulyJohn Muir
