Trondheim Norway July 29, 1893

Dear Louie-

We are now at the northmost point of the Norway trip & will probably be back in Leith next Saturday, Then I mean to go to Switzerland for a month. I have had a glorious & instructive time in Norway. Went through two grand Yosemite [illegible] & the scenery of the fiord is magnificent. I feel that the time is well spent & only regret that I can not stop & make some special

studies. I hope to be back in October - Have seen nothing of Keith - but find pleasant companions everywhere. From Naeradale Hello midge & Wanda - I hope you are well & enjoying the peaches. How I would like to see you again but I will soon. Here are a few flowers from the beautiful Romsdale & Naeradale Valleys Love to all. In hase

Ever lovingly. John Muir
