Home May 27, 08Darling Helen -I'm so glad you are enjoying bright vivid life as your letters show, the bodeful cough gone & side pains going, soon I fondly hope bodily weakness of every sort will take wing & vanish in the healing desert sunshine & wind. Anyhow looking bravely on the best side of everything, radiating loving sympathy & good nature wherever you go is the surest way to happiness & good luck both in this world & the nextI'm sorry Wanda can be with you only another week or two, but her visit to her Pasadena friends will also do her good, & she will return all the stronger to the loved of home, & perhaps find it easier to repeat her visits as health & work & duty may require & allow. Maggie is quite well again. & Hal's boy is growing fast. All in general[in margin: well. weather warm, hills brown. Ever affectionately,John Muir]
