Dear friends, Mrs & Mr Bidwell.
Good bye, I am going home. going to the mountains, to the ice & forests & flowers. I have just returned from Yosemite Valley where I enjoyed a delicious bath in fresh beauty notwithstanding the uneasy scare I had to suffer in being compelled to lecture. tomorrow I sail on the Dakota to the ice of the Upper Coast. first to Victoria & about the Sound thence inland here & there to learn what I may: Will probably visit Alaska ere I return in the fall. I am delighted with the progress you have made & are making in botany. Go ahead - just think what comfers I will see. Remember me to your sister. Seattle B.C. will be my address for a few weeks. Goodbye with very cordial regards John Muir.
