[2]you had accomplished on the Pacific slope; and the distinguished honors you had won in the realms of natural Science.I am an old man, friend Muir; The children call me Santa Claus. The sun of my brief day long since passed its meridian is now low down the western sky and will soon set in night. I may never enjoy the pleasure of meeting you again in this world but I hope that when life's journey is ended, we may be permitted to renew our acquaintance in the land of the leal.I trust this letter will find you enjoying the choicest blessings of lifeM.
