Martinez, Cal. July 15, 1904

Dear Mr Seaman:

I sincerely thank you for your kind invitation to make the Yosemite trip with you- a trip which at all times & seasons is one after my own heart though seldom make under auspices so pleasant as yours. It is with great regret therefore that I find it impossible to get away from the pile of work accumulated during more than a years absence abroad.

Thanking you again

I am with best wishes

faithfully yours

John Muir.
