that I can appreciate. [Beth?] is as busy as a bee & [enjoying?] the [Studie?] [work?]. She has written to you I know. She & Billie are to have a home together this winter which will be a great pleasure to them both. Mrs Harriman I have not seen since we parted at Arden Station on September 8th but next week before sailing I expect to be in New York for a few days. Has there been any recent developments in Hetch-Hetchy matters? Soon after [reaching?] home I thought matters looked dark, but of late I have seen nothinh in our papers on the subject. I so hope all your labors may be rewarded & the beautiful valley saved from distruction Don't come East while I am away. But do come in the spring when I am here & when the flowers & trees are blooming. Always love to you dear Mr Muir from your friendBlossom Averell
