[Annie] Wanda [Muir]
[letterhead]Sep. 221898My dear WandaI sent you a p[illegible]ed [leaf?] from my notebook yesterday from the train. & here is an appendix for it in ink. We arrived at this charming inn after dark in the rain tired out & more than half sick with bad food & overabundance of fine scenery. New flowers new trees etc. Just this moment Sargent who was out on the porch looking at the rain & magnolias, liquid ambers, sassafras, rhododendron, liriodendron, chestnut oak & scarlet hemlock etc. came in & said "Muir what are you writing? a romance"? I said "No. I am writing the truth" That said he is a very hard thing to do. "Yes" I said "I know it is for some"I slept well last night & feel better02473
