[Page 4] beautiful. I am very glad to hear that you are learning some good lessons every day. The precious time of youth is now yours my dear but it will soon pass away and never come back. Make haste then to fill your mind with beautiful and good things while your memory is able to hold them. I hope you and Helen got the flowers I sent you from the grand valley of Norway. Thank you darling for your two fine letters. Good night. Your loving papa John Muir
