[3]Antarctic regions which he made some fifty years ago when he was with the [illegible]rated Ross Expedition as naturalist. I saw [Kerr?] also & the Tower & Wordsworth's Lake region. In Edinburgh I found the old publisher David Douglas who was a father to me & just as good as possible. Saw Scotland pretty well & Ireland slightly, went from Doublin to Killamey From your house I visited my mother in Portage & my old professors in Madison then returned to Chicago & home. I wonder if you are coming to California this winter - you may be here now. Do come & see us Remember me to Mrs Sellers. Thanks to all, & best wishes. Ever your friend John Muir[1]Martinez, California,December 31, 1893.My dear Mr Sellers,Looking back over the years blessings, one of the best & handsomest in sight is my long pleasant eventful visit to you in your beautiful happy home. I have seen Keith & he says the same thing, so we are agreed for once I was sorry to find you away on my return from Europe for I had a hundred things to talk over or tell, But no doubt you needed rest though I came near pursuing you into your [Puckaway?]
