1219 Taylor St S.F.TuesdayDear Louie,Your letter arrived yesterday & I was glad to hear that you were well & the children. I am pegging away making dull slow headway though improving now that the squirrels chinamen & grapes are out of me. Saw [Haufner?] - He told me that Mathews thought he had the ranch sold or nearly so, but that instead of getting the Doctor to go up on Sunday as he expected to settle the matter, Mr. Bush took him to see some farm in Pechico Valley - so I suppose that ends it as far as we are concerned. I hear that Swett is offered a place on the board of Normal School Trustees. He must accept it. Try your persuasion on him when you see him. Send no pears. Make Frank give the fallen ones to the horses & cow. Will probably be home Saturday evening. Call for me then should you hear nothing laterLove to allYrs John Muir-01394
