[Page 3] I will probably be in print in the fall. I made all the illustrations myself and have been exceedingly busy all winter. I send you our old account. You will see by the date that your ten years is up, However I am not so greatly in need of money as to wish to put you to inconvenience in paying it. I only feel poor when I think of marrying, which does sometimes enter even my wild contented happy life. When you get ready send through Wells Fargo Express. I shall return here to write another book next fall, and my address remains the same. Any letter you may send will be kept for me. With cordial regards for the welfare of yourself and family and all old friends I remain. John Muir.
