My Dear Muir
It will be pure luck, I suppose, if at this [illegible] you are within reach of this letter, by which I desire to introduce my associate and near friend, Prof. Sargent, the Director of our Garden and Ar[illegible], & his companion, Mr. Phillips. I do wish you [illegible] hold them fast
and take them down to [underlined: Sequoia forests] on King’s River, and the like , But I fear you will find them even more [illegible] [illegible] [ Hooker?] and I were. I trust you duly received the copy of [underlined: S[illegible]] which [ Hooker?] sent out for you. Always I remain yours sincerely
