ARNOLD ARBORETUM, HARVARD UNIVERSITY,Jamaica Plain, Mass, November 1, 1898.My dear Muir:I took the liberty of opening the enclosed telegram which came for you here this morning. I got home Saturday night all right and have been in bed ever since. Now the doctor says I am cured and, although still a little weak, I think I am all right.The plan now is to leave here Tuesday evening next, taking the train which goes by the East River without stopping in New York City. This train reaches Wilmington, Delaware, early Wednesday morning. I shall be accompanied by a couple of members of the Boston Park Commission and their Superintendent, Mr. Pettigrew, who want to see the Wilmington and Baltimore parks. The plan is to pass Wednesday morning in Wilmington and then go to Baltimore for that night, see the Baltimore parks Thursday morning and go on to Washington the same day with the Commissioners, leave them there and start at once for Florida,Gibbs is still very unhappy in not seeing you and if you are coming to Boston before starting for the south I will try and arrange for him to come to Brookline next Monday evening, but you will have to let me know about this as soon as possible. If you do not come to Boston your plan would be to leave New York either next Tuesday afternoon, pass the night in Wilmington with Canby or at the hotel as you may prefer, and join us Wednesday morning. Or if you do not want to024900 2- V
