This all impresses me as very strange, all combining at once, as it were. "Senator Perkins is not for Gen. Bidwell but I intend talking to him," said Mr Garver to me, recently. He made that [illegible] eloquent plea for General at the Washington California Society, of which I may have written you.I have a very unsteady [7]right hand, from neuritis, (which doctor tells me will be unsteady for some months), hence this dreadfull scrawl.I hope to be at home by June first, & Mr A. sister and Willie, to follow in July. Oh how I wish you would join us there, with as many of your dear ones as possible.Please give my most cordial greeting to Mrs Muir and my love to the dear daughters.Yours heartily and always, Annie K. Bidwell
