[Jeanne C.] Carr
Yosemite Valley June 7th 1873
Dear friend Mr Carr,
I came down last night from the Lyell Glacier weary with walking in the snow but I forgot my weariness & the pain of my sun blistered face in the news of your coming I would like you to bring me a pair or two of green spectacles to save my eyes, as I have some weeks of hard work & exposure among the glaciers this fall, They are sore with my last journey. All of the upper mtns are yet deeply snow clad & the river from the top of Lyell was inf[illegible]ly glorious, Thanking God for thee I say a short Farwell
[in margin: Dr Kellogg has not yet appeared nor any of the other friends you speak of]
