John Muir



Jamaica Plain,Mass.,July 3,1897.

My dear Muir:

I have from Congdon, who lives at Mariposa, branches of Abies magnifica with the buds of the staminate flowers still unopened, so there is perhaps still a chance to get them this season from high altitudes. Congdon's specimens were taken on the 6th of June.
Canby cannot leave home until August 1st.This means that I will start on the 2nd and will meet you at Bamff about the 6th or 7th. Of course if there is any change of date, I will notify you in time. We count, of course, on your being there when we arrive or shortly afterward.

Faithfully yours,

John Muir, Esq.
