Dear Mr. Muir.

I took the pleasure a couple of days past to mail to you a copy of the second edition of the Southern Timber Pines, which has been lab[illegible] issued. I shall happy if you will accept the book in kind remembrance of the hours you did spend with us in Mobile.
The present is a strange winter with, Cloudy skies, scarcely interrupted by bright sunshine, continued chilly damp weather with frequent storms and heavy rains prevails almost constintly. In consequence I am doomed to indoor life, and have more than my wanted share of rheumatic troubles and heavy coughing spells. Matters are progressing nicely in regard to the progress in the publication of the Plant life of Alabama. I am hard at work to meet the suggestion to add to the catalogue of Vascular Plant in connection with the work, the Cellular plants so far known to occure in this state.

With my warmest wishes I am truly yours

Charles Mohr

To. John Muir Esq.
