Jamaica Plain, Mass., December 13, 1906.My dear Muir:Are you dead or asleep at the switch? or what has become of you? It is months since I have heard from you. Please make some sign and let me know that you are well and that your daughter is better or I hope entirely recovered.I had rather hoped to go to South Africa this winter to get away from the cold and to see some more of the world, but I have had too much to do here in the Arboretum with Crataegus and other things to make it possible to get away, so I am staying at home to my great regret and trying to clear up the great amount of material which has been accumulating here of late. After this, if I have luck, I do not want to pass any more winters in this sort of climate. When are you coming east and why don't you go and see the Andes?Faithfully yours,C.S.[illegible]John Muir, Esq., Martinez, Cal.03781
