John Muir


[Annie K.] Bidwell


[in margin: Let us know your train & I'll meet you at the station]

Martinez, May 29, 1900.

My dear Mrs Bidwell;

That confounded cable car came down on our pleasant conversation this afternoon like a smothering avalanche Now why not come up here all of you before you go home & finish our talk with calm Campfire deliberation? Do come, both the girls are at home & Mrs Muir will be delighted to make your acquaintance. Come on: it is only a two hours ride & a day or two rest in our little valley will do you all good.

Ever Yours

John Muir
