01673[in margin: 724]they make me talk so much I have not much time to write. Willie feels lonesome without you & so do I. but I wont stay very long. I suppose the cherries are ripe. Everybody thinks your picture & Wandas is lovely. I suppose Wanda & Lou are studying. You must learn to read more, but you can write letters very nice now, & you must write a whole lot & so must Wanda & mama. I was glad to get mamas telegram. Tell Mama to send letters care of Mr Johnson & he will send them when he knows where Ill be - & now I send you lots of kisses & I love you dearly Give my love to all the rest dear Helen. from your loving papa John Muir
