[letterhead]June 30 1902Dear Mr Muir.I am just back from your glacier which I found & left in good state of health - but it gave me a rather cool reception on as fair a morning as ever smiled on its rugged whiteness. It only sent out a cohort of floaters about the bay to receive us. I propose to go into the Kings River region this week some time. My last from Dr Merriam030182[letterhead]informed me that he should stop at Knoxville Tenn for a week & not reach Kings River till about 10th— Do you know anything more recent than 17th June? [illegible] I was informed here at the Academy of Sciences that he & you were intending to go in together this week - and that your daughters have already joined the club - The Chronicle of yesterday states that the Tuolumne region is on fire and its big trees almost sure to be destroyed [illegible] a high wind to S.E. Would it be likely to affect your movements?Respectfully YrsJ.S. Merriam[in margin: Wawona was sending aid -]03018
