[Jeanne C.] Carr
1419 Taylor St [deleted: May] June 5th 1878Dear Mrs Carr, I’m sorry I did not see you when last in the city. I went over to Oakland, thence to Alemeda to spend a week & finish an “article” with our good old [ Giffons?]; but the house was full, then I went to Dr. Strentzel where I remained a week, working a little, resting a good deal, & eating many fine cherries. I enjoyed most the [underlined: white] bed in which first I rested after rocking so long in the rushes of the Stockton slough. They all were as kind as ever they could possibly be, & wanted me to stop longer but I could not find a conscientious excuse for so doing, & came away somewhat low with obligations from stopping so long. [ But?] Mrs & Mr Allen there. Swett has gone this morning to Shasta taking Helen & Im terribly lonesome & homesick & will not try to stand it will go to the woods tomorrow. How great are your trials, I wish I could help you. May the Doctor be speedly restored to health. Cordially yrs John Muir
