William promised her that I would not call on her without an invitation. I answered William's letter and told him that I was going straight there - That I was not going to make an Enoch Arden of myself, and I was not a coward and would go and see her and the children let the consequences be what they may.This letter had a bad effect on my health but I am getting around all right but am somewhat undecided what I shall do. These last few days I have been feeling splendid- much better than I have been for monthsI have been climbing mountains lately, and think that after a while I shall go and see the Yosemite.Yours very trulyPeter L Trout.
