grim work is staring me hard in the face crying "'twill soon be dark," and urging concentration and haste. And Alas the advice seems reasonable.I'm in my little library den looking over notes, plotting and planning and trying to get the lonely old house into something like order though how long I'll stay in it I dinna ken, or where I'll settle and cease from wandering.Goodbye with love to all your blessed clanJohn Muir
