Can't you come & visit me here? I should be delighted Adamana on the Santa Fe R.R. is easily reached & I would show you not only the Forests of sil[illegible]fied trees known to tourists but four new ones discovered by Helen & I in the beautiful bad lands within a radius of eight or ten miles of the Sta[illegible] & by the many fine specimens I have found - Segillarias & their dotted stigmari roots - Lepidodendrons, Cycad Tree ferns etc etc besides oldest pines & Araucarias- restore for you in some measure the enchanting auld lang syne forests of the Carboniferous Period.Do come if you can. We are as near you here as in California. Anyhow I am faithfully yoursJohn Muir09195
