Louie [Wanda Muir]
St. Michael’s July 5th, 1881 My dear wife, We sail for the north today our stores are nearly all on board. With reference to our plans I can say little more. I will mail five Bulletin letters here wh will give you details of our cruise thus far. I wish you would send copies to mother and save a few for myself. Your next letters after these will probably be by returning whalers. The weather is lovely today. I was offered a passage on a steamer 1600 miles up the Yukon from here, but I prefer to work out the series of observations I have now so well in hand. Heaven keep you all Mother, child, grandmother & grandfather. Ever yours John Muir
