[Jeanne C.] Carr and [Ezra S.] Carr
La Grange Nov 15 69
Dear friend Mrs & Mr Carr
I thank you most heartly for the very kind invitation you send me. I could enjoy a blink of rest in your new home with a relish that only those can know who have suffered solitary banishment for so many years but I must return to the mountains - to Yo Semite I am told that the winter storms there will not be easily borne but I am bewitched-enchanted & tomorrow I must start for the great tem- ple to listen to the winter songs & sermons preached & sung only there The plains here are green already & the upper Mtn's have the pearly whiteness of their first snows
Farewell I will bring you some cones in the spring I hope that you enjoy your labor in your new sphere - My love to all your family - & I am yours most cordially John Muir
