[letterhead]to the Valley, stopped a few minutes with the crowd at the front of hotel then rode down the valley & camped on the side of the Bridal Veil Meadow as p[illegible]ly & undisturbed as where back of Glacier Point. In the morning joined the party on stage & reached Raymond before 6 o'clock. I never before had so interesting hearty & manly a companion. I also greatly enjoyed03251[letterhead]Dr Butler of Columbia, Sec. Moody, governor Par[illegible]er, & Sir L[illegible], whose acquaintance I made on the stages & train. Pres Wheeler also I like more & more.When I told the President that Helen was seated near him at Berkeley He said Oh if I had only known that John Muir's daughter was so near me!03251
