My dear Mr Muir
My husband, Captain Robert Catlin received the book and autograph letter you sent him, this morning and as, an attack of Paralysis has made it difficult for him to write, he has deputed me to act as his most willing amanuensis and I take this opportunity
to add my thanks to his for your great kindness.
It has increased the debt of gratitude we already owed to you for giving us the great pleasure of being your travelling companions through so many beautiful lands, we have climbed with you "the heaven kissing hills" traversed glaciers and
rested under the giant Sequoias and you have brought into sick rooms the [fresh?] m[illegible]ating a[illegible] of nature which stimulates the mind and through it, the stricken body. I shall also thank our dear Mrs. Bidwell for her kindness and hope you will
