Bordeaux July 3rd 1895.John Muir, Esq'reCalifornia.My dear Sir,One of the most agreeable surprises ever felt since I left San Francisco was for me when your so very interesting work, "The Mountains of California" reached my solitary home a few days ago; and I very heartily thank you not only for the valuable gift it really is for one, but also and above all for your so flattering and kind recollection of "the friend of old California days." Be sure that very pleasant memories I myself entertain and cherish, with a kind of religious devotion, of those agreeable days you so delicately allude to;[in margin: Kirwan]6401999
