[in margin: Liverpool remittance just arrivedJohn Muir22 Feby. 1898]Sent Feb. 8Martinez, Feb. 22 1898received March 10My dear Cousin HayI should have written you long ago when Watsons Doctor came. Have been stupid with work. I'm sorry to see that Mr. [Howie?] is to leave us so soon. He was a few weeks at the house, then tried batchelor hall. Made a failure of housekeeping. Gave up hope of being a fruitraiser & went to a Martinez hotel, where he has been waiting for a [remittance?]. The cold part of winter is over, Almond & Apricot trees in bloom, still he means to try Denver, Colorado. He is looking pretty well, at present.I hope to get another book out next fall.With cordial regards for all the familyI am ever YoursJohn Muir02403
