Mr. John Muir. 2.At the close of the Civil war I left Murphy's and have since lived in this city. This spring if it is possible, I am bound to go into the Yosemite Valley and also revisit my old home in Murphy's. Should I pass through Martinez, I have an idea I would like to stop off for an hour and exchange greetings with you.Indeed you are doing in your books a wonderful work. Your descriptions of Mt. Shasta, Yellow Stone Park and many places in the State of Washington which I have visited are simply grand.Considering that I am a stranger to you, I will make this communication brief.Wishing you a happy new year, long life and many more trips with "Brownie" through the Grand Sierras and with sincere regards, I am,Yours sincerely,[Illegible]04679
