[General] John Bidwell
Chico, June 19, 1889.
Your very kind letter of 18th inst. duly to hand this morning. Our interpretation of your telegram was that you were about to make us a visit. Hopes blasted! Of course I shall be glad to see your friend Mr. Johnson, and do anything in my power for him. But I cannot be a contributor to his magaine for I cannot write - there is nothing literary in my composition. Mrs. Bidwell - as I am - is disappointed in not seeing your wife and self, before our departure for Colorado Springs, Colo. which will be within two weeks we hope. With best wishes, in which my wife cordially unites, I am very sincerely
Prof John Muir
