few weeks by the way We hope to spend a few days in Madison and I promise myself a great deal of pleasure. I hope to go south towards the end of summer and as this will be a journey that I know very little about I hope to profit by your coun- sel before setting out. I am very happy with the thought of so soon seeing my Madison friends & Madison, and the plants of Madison & yours. I am thankful that this affliction has drawn me to the sweet fields rather than from them. Give my love to Allie & Henry and all my friends Yours most cordially John MuirRoses with us are now in their grandest splendorMy address for five or six weeks from this date will be, - Portage City Wis - 00416
