John Muir


[Kellogg family]

flowery table flanked with merry mountaineers looked something like a Sierra Canyon so they called it, the Muir Gorge. After dinner we marched to the meeting, every face radiant & entered the hall in a triumphant rush, fairly overwhelming the poor astonished Hetchy dammers- Next morning the Call reported that I had packed the meeting, though forsooth I had only packed seventy seven stomachs.But nonsense enough, I must to work. I'm pegging away at old notes, occasionally finding something that may prove worth while.Thanking you again for that charming day & hoping to see you both again I am faithfully & affectionately yours John Muir
