John Muir Esqr.

Dir Sir

I beg to be excused for not keeping my appointment yesterday. From the wet streets, the sky overcast with threatening clouds and the wind blowing from the south west, prognosticating a rainy day, I staid home, and can assure of having felt very sorry indeed, when at about 9 o’clock the rising sun by his warm rays dispersed the clouds as if by enchantment, and made of yesterday a day inviting pleasant excursions. But as delayed pleasure is not an abandoned one, my wife and myself will have the consolation of surprising our Alhambra friends on one of the Sundays in the next future. With our best respects to your ladies and yourself. I remain

respectfully yours

C. Bielawski
