[Page 6] expense as I will gladly attend to that when I get back. I’m glad however to hear that Helen sweet Helen darling Helen keeps well & that you have a good teacher for her and Wanda. Tell Wanda she is a capital letter writer & that she has been my mainstay and comfort in keeping me within touch of home while on my long lonely journeys. From what I can make out Grandma is about the same as when I left. I trust you will all be better with the cooler weather of autumn. Any how you will soon again have me with you to tease you if nothing else. How you and Grandma would enjoy Westminster Abbey. I sent you all letters from the Continent which I hope you received. With love good night every yours John Muir.
