[Charles F.] Lummis
& I have seen something of the head fountains in the Rockies but its all untellable, unspeakable yet I was fool enough to try to write about it after years of editorial prodding & am still trying. The job is rightly yours, but wiser than I, excepting a few [illegible] cock-crows, you have held your wheest most ably. You had just been to the Canon with the Ripley party & I had no hope of getting you to go with me in January. Still I look forward to a grand trip in that glorious region with you visiting the [pitrified?] Forest, old cities, etc, just our two selves, for I want to make your acquaintance & this is the only way With love to Tur[illegible] I am faithfully yours John Muir
