Louie [Strentzel Muir]
[in margin: [stricken words] that I cannot go to Springfieldwith love to all John Muir]color from the blue & white violets among the grass on the meadows to the crimson pillars of the snowflower amont the brown needles beneath the firs, ferns & mosses in a thousand moist nooks among the rocks humming-birds among the flowers small zingers among the underbrush & wide-winged hawks & eagles floating between the mighty walls; beautiful life & light in every form types of stern enduring strength & things frail & fleeting meeting together. as if into this grand mountain mansion nature had gathered her choicest treasures whether great or small
