[in margin: 856] [4]of the mountain seen on the righthand side when standing on the steamer's deck facing the glacier: She sent also a photograph of the glacier showing this mountain; and "hopes for an answer at your own convenience."Dear John, the Alaska book and the Yosemite book must be written, and you need to be your own self,, well and strong, to make them worthy of you; there is nothing that has a right to be considered besides this except the welfare of our children, Ever lovingly yours Louie Muir.01311[1]Martinez, Cal. August 9.1888.Dear Papa, Your letter of Aug. 1st from Seattle made us glad, and yet grieved us that you should have been so worried and anxious. I did not think you could return so soon, and write to Victoria, supposing that you would come back that way and stop at the Driard. O John, try to rest a little to grow well and strong again. You seemed to feel so much better and be so comfortable at Victoria, that it is just wicked and cruel for anything to make you feel that you must hurry away while it is
