ARNOLD ARBOREYUMDon1! go now and plead the necessity of literary work to stay at home. Winter is the time for that and now is the time to be in the field trying to find out something about trees. If you feel that you know as little about them as I do now after passing the summer looking at Crataegus specimens, you will pack your grip forthwith and start forth [Illegible] the woods.Canby was here the other day improved in health and next week I am going down to Wilmington again to see him and hunt Crataeguses with him there and in Pennsylvania. I now expect he will be with us in the autumn.With kind regards to your family,Always faithfully yours,IllegibleJohn Muir, Esq.Martinez, Cal.
