[Charles Sprague] Sargent
Martinez, March 5, 1900My dear Prof Sargent,I suppose you & Canby will soon be in the woods. Good luck to you. Let me hear from you now and then that I my get glimpses of the Magnolias [Kalemias?] rhododendron etc in bloom I have so long been hoping to see - I'm bound fast with dragging tasks that should have been off my hands long ago. The Calaveras Sequoias among a host of other interruptions has taken a week of my time. I'm glad your London trip was successful, but sorry to hear of Hookes illness. Grand old man. The last of a group of giants - Sequoias. Pity me in my scribble den & send me silvan letters to cheer my lonliness. Love to Canby. How glad you must be in full sight of the end of your grand book. Ever Yours John Muir
1900 Mar 5
