John Muir


[A. H. ] Sellers


Martinez, California, October 30, 1885.

Dear Mr Sellers: I’m back again to the old ranch with its sunshine chi[illegible] & grapes, & feeling much the better for my little runaway trip among friends & geysers, etc. That Catlin cooking failed to kill & I mean to dare to park another time with all its [illegible] of slush, mush, & ancient stuff in tin. I shall always remember my trip with you friends three with a great deal of pleasure, & regret that the care of a sick sister prevented me from seeing more of you while I stayed in Chicago Here is a short Yellowstone letter which you may care to look over Remember me to Mrs Sellers & Frank, & believe me Ever yours truly, John Muir.
