John Muir

some friends worried me into helplessness & made me sit for a bust What they can want with me in clay iron or brass I can't imagine. Setting here trying to write I often feel that I must escape to the wilderness once more. You have no idea how I'm set upon. The severe weather you have had this winter I hope is now past for the year & that you will all come through these & all other trials safely & yet see many happy days on both sides the continent. With hearty thanks I am ever sincerely yours John Muir
