Martinez, Monday

Dear friend.

Here is Prof Anderson's address
Mr Melville B Anderson
Via Giovan Battista Amici
Florence, Italy
c/o Maquay & Co.
That queer red flowered plant with one stamened tubular spurred flowers is Red Valerian (Centranthus ruber Nat. Order Valerianaceae), from Southern Europe.
Your visit was dolefully short, but so are all love-folks, even the lifelong ones.

Ever faithfully

John Muir
