My dear Muir, Here lie your significant Cedar flowers on my table, & in another letter, & I will procrastinate no longer. That singular disease of deferring, which kills all my designs, has left a pair of books brought home to send you months & and months ago, still covering their inches on my cabinet, & the letter & letters we should have accompanied to utter my thanks & lively remembrance, are either unwritten or lost,—so I will send this peccavi , as a sign of remorse. I have been far from unthankful, —I have everywhere testified to my friends, who should also be yours, my happiness in finding you,—the right man in the right place,—in your mountain tabernacle,— & have expected when your guardian angel would pronounce that your probation & sequestration in the solitudes & snows had reached their term, & you were to bring your ripe fruits so rare and precious into waiting Society.. . . . .
