2the State. I put in a day at St Louis. The Exhibition was not nearly finished but I saw the arrangement and had a rest at the same time.My cabin companion in the [illegible] Lucania was an acquaintance on the [illegible] Siberia Major Radcliff. He turned out to be a very pleasant companion indeed. I had two friends from Glasgow on board so the seven days passed pleasantly enough- It was very stormy but as usual I escaped seasickness-I guess you will now be settled down again and glad of the change.Next week I shall mail you some shortbread which I hope will reach you in good order.With kind regards and again many thanks for your kindness.Yours sincerelyAudr. McLeannanP.S. My degree for the Tay[illegible]an College has not yet arrived. (He may be purchasing parchment) I must therefore just add 'W.F.D. which will represent ' waiting for degree'.Aud LJohn Muir EsqMartinezCal03418
