[Catherine H.] Hittell
Martinez, Jan 9, 1908Dear Miss HittellI'm delighted with the salvation of the Tamalpais Redwood groves, that so noble a park, naturally a part of San Francisco should ever have been in danger of destruction is a sad commentary on its citizen[illegible]I'll write Mr Kent my thanks & congratulations. How refreshing to find such a man amid so so vast a multitude of dull money hunters dead in trespasses & sins.I have been away in the Mohave desert making a camp for her where she will according to Dr Moffett have to stay for a year or two. Her address is Daggett, California, Write to her. She has been very sick - pneumonia - but is getting better & is charmed with the grand spacious desert scenery & climate. We left home Dec. 20, hence delay in reply to your letters, thoug I had already written to Mrs White. Will return to Daggett in a week or so. With all good wishes,faithfully yours John Muir
