I shall fondly hope that you also will come again to this side the big botanic garden for another ramble among the trees & to delight your friends. The [Bidwells?] among others would be beside themselves with joy should you bless them with another visit Mr & Mrs Parry were up at their big kingdom ranch & they were here too among the vines & so was General Bidwell He is erect & massive as ever. I have not yet heard from those Arctic plants & sent you by express two months ago. Have you received them?Hoping you will long be spared to bless the people & the plants I am ever your admiring friend John Muir.
