Dear Mr Muir:

I enclose the letter which may be of some benefit to you and hope that you will advise us of your arrival at the end of your railroad journey in the Far East. I regret that I cannot be one of your companions in your interesting trip.
This is the second day upon which I have dressed and walked about, and even have been driving in the Park, So you see I am progressing very well.
Wishing you and Mr Sarqeul every success in your undertaking,
Believe me,

Yours sincerely,


Mr, John Muir,

Mr John Muir is about to make a trip over the Trans-Siberian Railroad. On his arrival in the Eastern ports, I desire that he and his companion shall be facilitated, particularly in his homeward journey, in every way that he can by courtesy and accommodation on your part.
