[2]also at several islands & Manilla arriving at Hong Kong about the 22d of April Here I intend to take the fine new steamer "Siberia", 12000 tons which sails from Hong Kong for San Francisco on April 30 & is due in San Francisco about the end of May. So you see I have only one more change to make between this wonderful antipodal Kangeroo & blue green country & California & home How glad I am to think of it. I seem to have been dragged03347[3]& driven over nearly all the world & how hard I have worked & how tired I have been & how steadily the fire of enthusiasm has burned through it all & how glorious has been the compensation in these strange wildernesses. I suppose you enjoyed Mr Klings visit. Many a story he must have told you but Ill tell you more, I have lots of lovely ferns & mosses for you The Siberia is one of Harrimans Pacific Mail ships. While waiting for her to 03347
