I am going home - going to my summer in the snow and ice and forests of the north coast.Will sail tomorrow at noon on the Dakota for Victoria and Olympia. Will then push inland and alongland. May visit Alaska.I hope you and the doctor may not suffer yourselves to be drawn away into the stream of politics again. You will be far happier on your land.I was at the Valley. How beautiful it was - fresh and full of cool crystal streams and blooms. Was not scared in my lectures after the first one.With kind regards to the doctor and the boys. Farewell.John Muir
