Blossom [Mrs. W. H.] Averell
My dear Mr Muir
The post card with the lovely [view?] of the Yosemite Valley, bearing your good wishes for the coming year, [were?] forwarded me from home & you can not [know?] how pleased I was that
You may wonder at the heading on this letter, but here my two girls & I came to pass the winter with my son who is Superintendent [of?] this division of the Southern Pacific R.R. We find the climate perfect at this time of the year & the desert interesting. Before long we return east to the wedding of Cornelia Harriman -
It would be such a pleasure to have our paths again cross -
Should Beth or I be near Martinez you surely would see us. May this year have pleasures for you. Beth sends her love to you & I my deepest regards.
