she is a [glowing?] lover of Dante Land. She has just started for Europe with her daugher & adopted daughter & will be in Italy most of the summer probably. I gave her your address & made her promise to call on you. She is one of my very best friends. It was under her roof that I wrote "My Boyhood & Youth," part of which you have seen in the Atlantic. I'm sending you a copy of the little book by mail.I haven't seen Francis Brown lately but hope to ere long. When are you coming home. I'm aching to see you God bless you dear friendEver affectionately yoursJohn Muir05441
