Oakland, Nov 30th 1872 Dear Runkle, I have carried the little instrument you sent me into most of the canons and over most of the peaks adjacent to Yosemite, and it has worked admirably well. I will return to Yosemite in a day or two. I send you a small article on glaciers wh will interest you. I will write glaciers this winter. Ever cordially yrs John Muir
