To Prof John Muir -
My dear Sir,
We got her today & had a splendid time on the way. I thought I'd tell you where I was because my chief reason for making the trip was to go to the big trees & wld be delighted to go with you as guide - philosopher & friend — Now don't you [illegible] the trouble
to come here — but just drop me a P. Card - telling me what I should do to reach the trees. Had I not better hire a back here in San Francisco? or shall I take the cars, wh I dare say wld be better. I'am but a lost man & dazed somewhat. I have seen some wonderful sights — When a journeyman I did a good deal of walking over the alps, but what I have already seen is just as good or better in some respects. I left my little [illegible] Ruth much - very much better so I came. Just send me a p. card. I am [dr Sir yours?] sincerely J. H. Mellichamp
