Home May 9, /08Darling Helen,I sent you a box of flowers today mostly sweet briar to perfume your little Den. You can have no idea how rich in color & luxuriant the garden is. Fong kept in fine order & free of weeds, He is now thinning peaches, There will be a big crop.Your Martinez house had a small fire in the roof a week or two ago, damage about $150- but as it was insured for $600 you will lose nothing, not even in rent for the Woods continued to occupy it while the new roof was being put on - Wanda will sign the deeds in a day or two. But she does not want the Home, for it would run her into debt too much etc.Dont bother your head anyhow as you are all right & dont make any business with Wanda when she is visiting. Just enjoy yourselves like little girlsEver loving John Muir
1908 May 9
