[3][letterhead]Thence over to the west side of the peninsula by Patalka & Gainesville to Cedar Keys on my old track made 32 year ago. At Archer I discovered most of the family who nursed me through a long fever. The old lady failed to recognize me & demanded my name, & when I said Muir she almost screamed "John Muir! My California John Muir? & how we talked over old times glad to find we were not forgotten through all these long icy years & sunny years You may imagine.I mean to stop a day or two at Mobile with an old German botanical friend of Asa Gray to see the forests there & at New Orleans with another botanist then straight home.
