for years have formed part of our [lives?]- Shall they go back into the blackness and the blankness [of ?] nothing? If not asking too much I should like an expression of your convictions on this subject. I saw you in Yosemite in 1872. We have some ferns growing under our dining room window that you & Mrs Carr bought from La[illegible] Farm- and you planted them. Mrs [illegible] was speaking of them to-day. She sends her kindest remembrance. I hope you remember me- and that sometime I may know your ideas on the two questions mentioned above. Yours Cordially Susan Merrill FarnamP.O. box 75 Fruitvale June 14- '03John MuirDear friendI have just read the delightful article about you in the Outlook for June [6?] and I am more than glad that to one of earths [limitation?] it is given to make so much out of a single life. I count it one of the blessing of my life to have seen and known you in your favorite Yosemite - and many of the things you said then are stored in my memory and I sometimes repeat them - 03266
