Dear Mr Muir,
It was very good of you to think of sending me your book 'The Mountains of California'. I am very glad to have it, and look forward to reading it, and appreciate the kind remembrance of me [which?] led you to
I infer from the [profr. swett?] that you have got home again, and hope you found the rest of your journey pleasant & interesting. I wonder if you met my cousin in Australia.
I enjoyed my little Annie at home, and was out here again as arranged by the end of December, since [illegible] I have been leading a quiet but not unpleasant life in this [swell? up country?] [illegible].
You were just in time in coming by the

With all good wishes, and hoping I may some day be able to avail myself of your kind offer to show me something of the 'mountains of California' at first hand if I travel
