My dear Woolson

Your fine volume has just arrived for wh’ I am much obliged. I anticipate a most interesting ramble through its big geological pages

Putnam sent me the Abode of Snow some weeks ago & I have read it – but was disappointed in the book although I did find a small quantity of snow and ince in it

I am busy with my own little book wh’ crystallizes slowly slowly slowy. Love to Mrs. W

Ever cordially

John Muir
