[Page 4] have $50, more, and I want you to send him fifty by Wells Fargo, charges paid. His address is:

J. H. Sisson, Sisson's Station, Berryvale, Siskiyou Co. You of course understand this fifty dollars is to be sent to Mr. Sisson, not to me, as I will be away. I saw Fitch and all the Bulletin folks before I left. They want some letters, but I'm too sleepy today for anything. Mr. Gregory's brother is here for his health. He enquired kindly for grandma and the Doctor. No particular hurry about that money for Sisson, but send it within a day or two of your receipt of this, and if you want more out of the bank send me a few blank checks. Ever yours truly, John Muir
