Sarah [Muir Galloway] Anna [Annie L. Muir]
[Rough draft of letter][May. '99 ]Dear Sarah & Anna:Goodbye. I'm off tomorrow for Alaska with a large scientific party. I was in the thick of my writing and would not have gone, however tempting the company and auspices had [it] not been that we are to visit the very part of the Coast I have not yet seen, least easy of access, that I have long been wanting to visit - namely from Yakutat to Cook Inlet and Kodiak. I had to go some time anyhow.We go on a special steamer. All expenses are paid by a wealthy New York business man - Mr. Harriman. Only part of the company I know -John Burroughs, Miss Kuhn, Cap. Dale, and Prof. Brewer. We leave Seattle May 30, and return in about 2 mos. I have just sent an article to the Atlantic on Yo[semite] Park. I'm tired writing and need a rest anyhow. I'm glad to hear you are well through Maggie's letter [which] I've just read.[John Muir]02588
