Nov. 6, 1898.

Dear Louie

It is settled now that I go on a short visit to Florida with Sargent but not by what way I'll return home.
I leave here tomorrow for N.Y. dine with Tesla and perhaps others then meet Sargent at Wilmington Wednesday. I’ve had a fine rest



in this charming home and feel ready for Florida, which is now cool and healthy. I’m glad to see the South again and may write about it. I was glad to get your telegram answered this morning address letters to Jacksonville Fla. for two weeks from this date.
I hope you may make the walking ferns sent by mail grow. I'll write soon after I start on this new trip

Love to all my dears & darlings

Ever Thine

John Muir
