The delightful days with you in Muir Woods and at your home will live always in our memories, and we shall always feel under obligations to you for your many kindnesses to us all. The books you presented to me are highly prized. Stikeen [Stickeen] I read aloud to the family, and the highest praise I can give it is to say that at its conclusion none of us was dry-eyed. We at once bought ten copies and gave them to friends. We hope to some day see you in our own home; and if there is ever any way in which we can serve you, command us. Sincerely yours, Mary E.
