like those about Yosemite & Tuolumne. A vast unletterable lot of them.At Beira caught the good Windhuk that I left at Capetown & am now on my way to Mombasa where I'll again leave her for a three weeks trip to Lake Nyanza, returning in time to catch the steamer "General" of the same line, due at Mombasa on the 27th of Feb. Then home I go via Suez, Naples & New York arriving California about April or May. You see then Darling that after a look at the lake region all the rest of the trip will be only easy homegoing hoping all the way to find you well. Wanda's health is a source of anxiety hope as I may.Love to all who love you.This letter will go direct ot Europe by this ship.Affectionately your fatherJohn Muir
