John Muir


journey through the South in the interest of the Atlantic in February and March and got back very much run down, so that after about a fortnight in the office he came down with crysipelas. For the last week or two he has been resting and recuperating in North Carolina, and he is so much improved that he expected to start for home to-day.
I hope you have been well. We have


been having some beautiful spring weather lately, and it makes me long to get into the woods - I mean big woods; I get into little woods about once a week.
With kind regards, believe me

Yours sincerely,

Francis H. Allen
