pleasures of the world, buckle down wisely to real work. In the prime of your life unwavering unseduced you have tramped on through Gods woods with the force & steadiness of an intellectual mastadon, & now nearing the end of your colossal job, you may henceforth saunter beneath the arms of the trees listening to their blessings with a shining face round & smooth & tranquil as the moon.I see nothing in the way of our Atlantic trip & I thank you for planning it. If Canby goes the thing must be perfect. A [contimation?] of last years.I sent a second box of flrs after learning that Miss Eastwood & Mr Clark & Soone had been unlucky.Ever YoursJohn Muir
