[letterhead]October 2, 1905Dear Mr. Muir:Your letter, telling the story of your afflictions, has pained me inexpressibly, but I am glad you are out in the wild, where if any comfort can come to you, it will come from the free, wind-blown, arid land which we both love.I hope your daughter may soon recover and that you yourself may gain strength from the pure desert air.Always cordially yoursBailey Millard03652
