John Muir



Black Point. April 18th 1880. Sabbath.

Dear Mr Muir.

I am out at Black Point at Dr Woodhull’s, and will be here until Tuesday morning, excepting on tomorrow from ten A.M. to 5 P.M. when I will be shopping. Mrs Woodhull and I are to be at the “City of Paris” store at 11. A.M. and at Davidsons at half pass one, and if you can not find your way out here without directions you might perhaps get them from Mrs Woodhull then. I know this is out of the world, but if you should be able to come over I should, you well known, be glad.

The storm delayed me in Oakland from Tuesday until Saturday, so I have just arrived, comparatively speaking. I intend acknowledging the receipt of that valuable gift of plants from Alaska, as soon as I have time, so I trust you will be patient! In haste Yours Truly A. K. Bidwell.

Mr John Muir.

P.S. It is possible, but probable, I may remain until Wednesday morning. Dr Woodhull lives by [Gail?]. McDowell.
