& beheld the most ravishingly beautiful sunset on the bay I ever yet enjoyed in the lowlands. I shall not soon forget the rest I enjoyed in your pure white bed or the feast at your fruity table. Seldom have I been so deeply weary - & as for hunger Ive been hungry still in spite of it all & for aught I see in the [illegible] of the stomach may go hungry on thru’ life & into the grave & beyond. Heaven forbid a dry year! May wheat grow! With lively remembrances of your rare Kindness I am very cordially yr friend John Muir 00761
