They brought into view with magic clearness our big pleasant trip together In Australia and New Zealand. Here is my best photograph, which perhaps you will mistake for that of one of the Katoomba natives. I am looking forward with great pleasure to your visit to our California home. When are you coming? Write and tell me how you are getting along. I am hard at work on Yosemite matters and another book.Hemember me to the MoPhails. With many pleasant remembrances,Faithfully yours,[John Muir][Willie Shields]
