Ill have to get my content now since I began this [bachel?] affair I dont feel so well but I think if other things run smoothly I would do finely The three university buildings are in the middle of a beautiful park of maybe a hundred acres the trees are close and beautiful some place at others smoothe and velvety Ask David Muir when you see him next if he dont think it [deleted would be] a place fitted by nature for breaking steers, the lake too would be so fine for stock I wonder who sent me the hook and eye box full of moss There is a card for Joanna Has W Reid given you the picture I sent you I wrote your name on it but did not tell him to give it to you It is the second drawing of the whole Mitchell's folk are well David M I hope you will write me a long letter soon Tell me all your troubles John Muir 00239
