the next steamer, but no other fruit and the late grapes will not be ready for 3 or 4 weeks yet, so that there is nothing about the ranch that need hurry you away from the mountains as the Chinamen are making boxes & attending to the squirrels.The prunes are extra nice, & we have now the most delicious clingstone peaches I ever tasted. The vegetable garden also is a success, much to the satisfaction of the children! lots of fine corn, beans, watermelons, ect.The assistant girl was not a success & read novels at night so we hurried her away, but as mother is better, we do not now feel uneasy at night. We have cold supper and so do not make any fire after noon.I have just seen in the Oakland paper that Ina Coolbrith is well again.I hope that you are writing many notes for your Yosemite book, selecting illustrations after your own mind, and also preparing glacier and Sequoia studies for any book.Old Mr. Firth is waiting to go to Martinez so I had better send this now, and write again.Let us hear as often as possible from youFaithfully yoursLouie Muir
