unavoidable. Thus far I have learned nothing but what is in the paper.I often think with pleasure of our delightful trip last summer. It was lucky for Sargent that his accident occurred in New York rather than at many of the places we visited. He does not expect to be out without crutches until late in the month of January.I suppose you are now quietly at home, enjoying the delightful climate of the season. As soon as I can get through some writing in hand I shall make a break for Charleston to see my children and grandchildren and enjoy the sun occasionally. Here no one can tell what a day will bring forth at this time of the year.With kind regards, and all the good wishes of the season,Yours very truly,Mr. John Muir, [illegible]Martinez, Cal.
