John Muir



June 26, 1901

Dear Mr. Muir,

Your very cordial note came yesterday, and I am pleased to know I shall have friends on the noble mountain tops. Tell Wanda & Helen, I am taking the privilege of my age


by having a tent, which I hope they will use for dressing and bathing very often. I am a novice in the Yosemite, as well as they, and we can [stand?] in awe struck wonder together - I am going by way of Raymond, the first of July, from San Francisco on the five

o'clock afternoon train. We shall meet in the Yosemite if all goes well, With kind regards to Mrs. Muir from Mr. Myrick and myself,

I remain,

Sincerely yours,

Emma A. Myrick
