My dear Mr. Muir:

Thank you. The Silva is coming on slowly. The fifth volume appeared in October and the sixth is fairly on the way. I am working hard at it in order to get it off my hands in time to pay you a visit this spring. I should have accomplished this easily if the grip had not got the best of me in December and caused me to lose nearly a month's time. However, I still want to get away, if I can, in time to see something of the Spring vegetation of California which will be quite new to me.
Planned it [illegible] a dozen years [illegible] - 1893When we meet we can talk over that trip to India which I am still keen for, and all the more so if I can have the pleasure of your company.
We often think and speak of your visit to Brookline and I hope the time is not far distant when you will come and see us again. I am glad you had such a good time on the other side of the ocean.

With kind regards,

I am,

always faithfully yours,

C. S. Sargent.
