apart from the interest to me as a souvenir of yourself & our pleasant times togehter in Norway & Roxburghshire.
I have not given up hope of visiting you in your western home some day but I am afraid not in 95. I am off next month for a holiday in Southern Spain & the North of Africa. I hope to visit Gibralter, Cadiz, Seville, Granada,

John Muir Esq.

Dear Mr Muir

Thank you very much for your book. It was very good of you indeed to think of sending me a copy & I can assure you that I really shall prize it very much. I have only read the first chapter but I think I shall find it very interesting.



Malaga Tangiers Algiers & Oran.

It will be a great change from Norway but I think I shall enjoy it very much although there will be no great mountains and glaciers. Instead of that there will be the Moslem & the Arab.
Thanking you again very much believe me

Yours very sincerely

W Boyd [Price?]
