3for near two weeks, but return to her home on the morrow. It is much cooler here than where she lives. I have felt the heat very much this summer, but suppose it has done me no harm to get thoroughly warmed up. We see lots of fruit from our Golden state but not a peach which tastes good from there. Grapes are just in the early varieties. I often think of the lovely ones you sent me last October.I shall be so glad to hear from you and the girls. Jessie would join me in kind words were she 4at home and I shall hope to hear from you soon. Address me at 7116 Princeton Ave Chicago, Ill. and I am hoping for news that your home is not desolated. Am thinking of that other Muir who lives in the southern part of the state and often has been mentioned as if it were you or your family. It may be that house.Your old friendEmily O Wilson7116 Princeton Ave.Chicago Illinois
