the last of May with Dall, Coville, Gilbert, & perhaps is too numerous to mention This section of the coast is the only one I have not seen & I'm glad of the chance Good luck to you, I wish I were going to this leafy wood instead of Icy Alaska Be good to the trees You tough sturdy pair, dont frighten the much enduring Crataeguses & make them drop their spurs. & dont tell them quite eternally that you are from Boston & the Delaware Huckleberry Peninsula.My love to Canby - keep his frisks within bounds. Remember me to the Biltmore friends & blessed Mohr & Mellichamp And remember me also to the [illegible] Hickory & Oak & of the magnolias in bloom Heavens how they glow & shine & invite a fellowGoodbye. I'll hope to see you in AugustEver YoursJohn Muir
