ARNOLD ARBORETUM.2to me by the Geological Survey at Ottawa.Canby is feeling pretty lively and has been to Cape May to find that Myrica which we saw on that miserable day in Delaware and has found it, making a new northern station for this southern tree.The only thing which makes me look forward with any pleasure at all to the idea of going to the Pacific coast this summer is the chance it would give me of seeing you. I hardly think I shall go, although there is a question of a Juniper or two and of that Mendocino Cypress which is bothering me a good deal.I went over to see Mrs, Gray the other day, and During the winter she has been shut up six weeks with the grippe. I never saw her looking better or in better spirits.With kind regards to your family,Faithfully yours,[illegible]John Muir, Esq.Martinez, Cal.
