[Ralph Waldo] Emerson
John Muir Jul. 1872
Yosemite Valley January 10th 72.
Dear Emerson, Here is a sheaflet of winter wheat, ripe & mellow from fields of snow - A plume of Libocedrus golden with stam- inate cones. It will give you a tingle of beauty, & I will be glad. - Would you were here to sing our Yosemite snowbound. to bathe in these fountain lights - to warm in these fountain loves. What prayers push my pen for your coming, but I must hush them all back for our roads are deep blocked with snowbloom, Farewell, J Muir
