[illegible], against [illegible],AKBDear Mr MuirWhen Genl & my sister & I visited Calaveras grove Genl recognized many features of the locality, saying, "Yes, I was here," and when we reached the hotel he so described the Father of the Forest" to the guide that the latter replied "You have been here." Tears filled my husbands eyes & he turned away, but in a few moments said to me, "let us slip off alone to that tree." & without any wavering he led us to it. We were all much moved: he as the memories surging in upon him; we in sympathy with those memories. Sincerely yoursA.K.B.
