thence for a short visit to the Botanical gardens at Batavia and thence straight back to Boston - while I, free once more went on alone to India and made short trips in the Himalaya at Darjeeling and Simla. Thence to Egypt, Ceylon, Australia, New Zealand and the Philippines; and home by China, Japan and Honolulu. You were so many times in mind when I was in India and I often thought of the pleasure you must have had as a young, enthusiastic naturalist in the magnificent New Zealand forests. Your long life Sir Joseph has been truly noble; and I am, with sincere respect and admiration Faithfully yours, John Muir
