J. S. Merriam
Grand Hotel, San Francisco, Cal.,June 30, 1902.Dear Mr. Muir:I am just back from your glacier, which I found and 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 ehe bay to receive us.I propose to go into the Kings River region this week sometime. My last from Dr. Merriam informed me that he should stop at Knoxville, Tenn., for a week and not reach Kings River till about 10th. Do you know anything more recent than 17th June? I was informed here at the Academy of Sciences that he and 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 and a high wind to the S.E. Would it be likely to affect your movements.Respectfully yours,J, S. MerriamWawona was sending aid.03018
