while — most decidedly — as it is - The Yosemite delights me. It cannot be over-praised. And every now and then some phrase from one of your descriptions flashes into my mind.

Your interest and knowledge and the information you have given the world have really introduced us all to the Yosemite. The most natural one in the world to think of here is — John Muir.We start early tomorrow morning for the Little Yosemite, andthe day after, for Tuolumne Meadows.William, my nephew, is with me, and also Mrs. Clark (a cousin of Mrs Kellogg's) who is very proud of having been recommended to the club by you.Please do not give all your strength to your book on Alaska, but think also of your physical need for rest and refreshment. I hope you are feeling well now, and will continue to do so.Mrs. Clark and William are not here just now, but I know they would wish me to send you
