Miss [Mary Francis] Kellogg
Martinez, Feb. 1, 1913
Dear Miss Kellogg:
I’m glad to learn you are getting on with your handsome booklet. Mine is not half done.
I often think or dream of a house in Altadena. A good roomy one with big library but the thought of moving all my collections, getting servants etc is appalling and always makes me feel like taking to a hollow tree. Here I have all my notes but no typewriter and but little to eat to tempt one who takes no exercise. I suppose the only way to move is to hire some ruthless laborers who would regard the job as sand and rubbish shoveling.
With best wishes to all, every faithfully yours, John Muir
