My dear Johnson.

I am now making a little lonely raid northward to see the woods before the autumn tints fade. I left Boston this morning & expect to be in Montreal tomorrow morning return by Champlain & Lake George thence make a run through the White Mtns & back to Boston next Monday or so - Had a grand time in the southern woods our south most point was Tuscaloosa Alabama - I meant to stop at N.Y. on our way back but was told to hurry north to see the woods in glory have not yet seem any of

the notables about Boston that Sargent wants me to meet. Agarriz [Gibbs?] etc I ought to be in N.Y. by the 28th or 30th & start homeward early in Nov. Sargent was to have made this trip with me but he is sick & may be in bed a few days. Was taken ill in Delaware severe grippey cold or something like it - feel lonely wish you were along in Burroughs

Ever Yours
