ARNOLD ARBORETUM.2this summer and stick to work.whenever you get east you may be sure of a warm welcome and entire protection from people whom you do not want to see, and all social functions and formalities. We can go down, if you like, and pass a few days on the end of Cape Cod where my family goes for a few weeks every summer; and we can do a lot of other pleasant and informal things about here if you arrive sometime before it is time to start southward.I will write again as soon as I hear from Canby. I am really very much obliged for all the trouble you have taken about these Abies flowers, and I regret exceedingly that you should have had this long journey to Shasta with such inadequate results. Such disappointments as this, however, will show you how much trouble I have had in getting The Silva along as far as it is, and how much anxiety I still feel about the concluding parts. The new Palms of southern Florida especially harass me, and I do not yet see my way clear to obtain the material I need.Nothing new in the forestry situation in Washington. Let me hear from you again soon, and believe me, always faithfully yours,C.S. [illegible]John Muir, Esq.Martinez, Cal.02432
