Dear Mr Keeler

I see by the newspapers that you are back from the mountains & are now with a wise man from the east enjoying an outing in Ghostland- a good country we are all trying to see & know.
I am sending today by Ex. a few pears. Eat them quick before [illegible]

a wise man from the east enjoying an outing in Ghostland- a good country we are all trying to see & know.
I am sending today by Ex. a few pears. Eat them quick before they spoil & if you like them I'll try to find some green ones to ripen in the box.
Fondly hoping the little ones are well & wishing to be remembered to them & the Symonds & Miss Pratt

I am faithfully yours

John Muir
