[letterhead]Sept 17th 1895Mr. MuirDear Sir--Your envelope with its most interesting looking papers was received this afternoon just as Mrs. Ballard & I were taking the cars for this place--Mrs. B is already deep in the "Sequoia," & when this is posted I shall have the "Alaska" sheet, & must thank you for them all. I really feared you might forget your promise.We came here for the mines--in the morning shall drive but to the "Stamp Mills" & to Nevada City in the afternoon. Next day expect to see something of hydraulic mining at Bloomfield, & on Friday return to "Colfax" & our boarding place at Lander Station. Mr. Howells has a nice fruit ranch on one of the red, rolling hills of this part of02024
