better & hope to get into the mountains to recuperate. I may never return to this old home to stay as I have about completed a trade that will relieve Helen & I of the Vineyards In any case she will be away a couple of years. When I'll be able for literary work I can't tell, but I may bring a piece of work to Los Angeles & try working with you in your home as you proposed, while at the same time you could take advantaqge of anything attractive to you that offered. I usually finish what I begin, but in the last four years every literary plan has been interrupted about as soon as work on it is fairly under way & no friend however kind is able to help in such troubles.faithfully yoursJohn Muir09205
