Martinez, May 25, 1899

My dear Johnson--

Thanks for your good wishes. How grand it would be were you going too. You need a long cool trip as much as I do & I'm just dying for wildness
The last winter has been hard & barren--forest fighting & sickness in the family benumbed & Interrupted everything-
I got off one article on the Yosemite Park--Your Park--today & have 4 more half done to be finished in the fall.

We must make a glacial trip together

Ever Yours

John Muir
