ARNOLD ARBORETUM.and I will, I hope, start for Atlanta, Rome, Chattanooga, etc., for another Crataegus hunt. This ought not to take more than a couple of weeks. What a pity you cannot "be with us! If I do not have better luck in finding out what I want to know about the Cypress tree of Mendocino County than I have had so far from correspondence with Purdy and Miss Eastwood, you may see me in California next summer and, if you do, we will certainly have another glorious time together.I suppose this supplementary volume, which is giving me a good deal of trouble, will practically occupy the rest of this year. After that I shall be all right for China, Manchuria, India, Mexico, or any other part of the world where trees grow which I have not seen.Always faithfully yours,[illegible] John Muir, Esq.Martinez, cal.
