John Muir


Oakland Cal Sept 28th 1869.

Dear John Muir,
I make one more half desperate attempt to recover you in time; having gone to home keeping and having a place to which to welcome & in which keep you - You will report yourself accordingly at Oakland Webster St. near corner of 11th. "Tarltons' home". I am awfully homesick, had just as soon die & go to the wood as not - but the Dr & the boys might miss me & I wont. Besides I want to see you again - I have some for all your plants - Prof Butler has been here & gone to Sand- Mich. Islands - and I am as ever

Your friend Deanna Carr


Oakland, Cal[ifornia]
