Louie [Wanda Muir]
[letterhead]Aug 25Dear Louie - We arrived here this evening pretty dusty & tired from Murphy but your telegram was refreshing. Tomorrow we begin to climb again into the pine woods & will soon be more than cool enough with frost every morning until we cross the range by the Sonora Pass to Bridgeport & Mono where it will be warmer. Then up again to the Tuolumne Meadows by Bloody Canon making four crossings in all. I'll be home in from two to three weeks & I expect that Dr Merriam & his sister02723& her husband Mr Bailey (newly married & a splendid fellow) will be with me for a chipmunk visit. Have greatly enjoyed this rest from writing & the trip very much & have learned something new but have done nearly nothing on my article. I saw Mr Sperry & his wife & daughter at the Big Tree Grove & Mr & Mrs Hutchings were very nice. At the Grove I also saw Mr Blackledge the Methodist Minister whmo of course you know, & who inquired very kindly for you & Wanda02723
