Mrs. A. A. Flanner
you will therefore expect but little from me, and will be compelled in this matter, to practice to a considerable extent the lesson which the Saviour endeavored to beat into the stingy jews - viz to "give hoping for nothing again". I send cordial thanks Mrs Hanner for your sym- pathy. I am now pretty well. I shall endeavor to see you & your plants soon if I remain in the city. I am yours botanically John Muir
