We were passing through the farmers Palouse country - the most fertile I know of in all the interior of the continent The ride to along the Pend D Oreille River was charming - such a fine deep blue flood of cool water flowing past rocks through the beautiful forests.I suppose Ill be in Duluth next Monday. & Tuesday start down the lakes to Buffalo. When I get to Duluth I'll telegraph if I get a chance.I hope you & your mamma & Wanda are well. Give them my love. I hope too that Mesopotamia Tawny etc are well & that the house is not [illegible] by burned until the end of the world or near it. When you go over to Maggies give her my love. Goodbye dearEver Your loving Papa.John Muir
