[Louie Strentzel Muir]
ever think that we had been civilized mortals only two days ago. I am writing this curled up between a big fire and a sand bank on the side of the south fork of the Tuolumne Every once in a while some one throws a pine cone at me and a coolish wind off the snow scatters leaves and sand over the paper so this letter will be both disc[illegible]ted and blurry. Everything up here is just at its best and there is not so very much snow, the air is fine and I feel as if I could walk fifty or so miles with out half trying, but I just lie here and feel happy and have only walked about two or three. The horses come tomorrow. I havent heard anything from papa except that09186
