Dear Louie

The steamer leaves in a few minutes. Your letters received & the box of fruit. Have written you in letters that should have gone a week ago in the delayed Elder. Have got back safely from 2nd hard trip last night. Will be home soon. In great haste -

Love to all,

John Muir

Am strong & well but had very hard trip.
