920 Valencia St. S.F. Apr 24th 1879.

Dear Mrs Carr.

I enclose at last the name of the big orange book. Either Paqot & Co or [illegible] & Co. will import it for Mr Crann at the price pen named – for less if intended for the Library. I thought you would have been to make at least one of your small business -like calls to see me ere this, but I suppose the office & conventions & your farm leave you precious little time. Your days all go by in little beats & bits while you move so fast you are nearly invisible Had a moments talk with the Doctor. Am glad he is looking so much like himself again. The summer is coming. Dont know how it will be spent. Cordially yrs John Muir. [in margin: glossy leaves tilted at all angles] Did you hear the B[illegible] lecture the other day.
