4[letterhead]& made our visit very interesting. Mr Higginson is the man who wrote the pretty out-door book I gave to Lou. Tell Helen that I will send her pictures of Emerson & Thoreau today, & write a letter for her own dear little self tomorrow. It has been very hot but I have stood it quite well- for Johnson took me away when it was hottest. I must now go to work at my M. S. Ask mama to read you the story of the [illegible] dog & see what you think of it. Everybody here seems to think it wonderful. It is to form a separate article in the Century. Tell mama she will find it in a book copied from the original notes. Tell mama to keep in the shade & not read while her eyes are weak I shall get all your letters sent [c/ of?] the Century wherever I am. I will send my European address as soon as I know it. Goodbye darling babiesYour loving papa John Muir
