[in margin: #87]


Yosemite Valley Apr 19th 1873

Dear Mrs Carr,

The bearer of this is my friend Mr Black proprietor of “Blacks Hotel” Yosemite, He will give you tidings of all our Valley affairs. I sent off a letter & article for you a week ago. I find this literary business very irksome. Yet I will try to learn it. The falls respond glorious by to the ripe sunshine of these days. So do the flowers. I hope that you will be able to send me word when you will [underlined: Come] So that I may arrange accordingly. Mr Black will give you all particulars of trails times etc. If Moores have not

gone ranching send Mr Black over to their house. It will do her good. I fondly hope she is growing strong. Love to all.
