[William] Trelease


Martinez, CaliforniaMay 10, 1912My dear Trelease:I'm glad to learn you are now free to go your own flowery way while yet young and able. Happy man! burdened only with blessed good luck. May you live to be a hundred years young. Anyhow you will live forever in your works. I often think of our Alaska days nothing found in them has given greater pleasure than yourself.I've just returned from a grand trip in South America & Africa. Found lots of good botany & geology.Hoping to see you ere long I am with all good wishesEver faithfully your friendJohn Muir
