July 29, 1861: San Juan Bautista

July 29, 2011

Camp 38

Professor Whitney left for San Francisco immediately on his arrival here. I did not see him after leaving him at the sheep wells, but he will join us at New Almaden, near San Jose, in about two weeks.

The delightful temperature here at San Juan, of 75° to 85°, is now too cold. I left my coat with Peter and shivered all day yesterday (Sunday) as I lay in camp resting after our hard trip….

We had intended to leave for Santa Cruz [tomorrow], so [today] made our preparations, but [this] afternoon Professor Whitney telegraphed to me to wait until Thursday for letters and orders.
