Home May 29, 1908.Darling Helen:Here is a deed for Valona blocks for your signature I suppose it will have to be sent to San Bernardino, like the others you signed before Mr Van Dyke.It's cloudy & windy with low barometer today, but quite warm. It may be all this & more on the lovely Mohave for your favorite basking & blowing but too torrid I fear for poor Wanda Be good to her with coolest shady places & keep her as long as you can. Tom went to town today He says he is going to send you cherries. A little boy who lives near McNamara's came this afternoon for flowers for his fathers grave. I gave him all he could carry. In the P.M. he came again with a little brother about 4 yrs old who, when he gazed at the glorious mass of geraniums said "Gee! I wish Mamma would buy this place, but I spose it would be worth a million dollars."Ever affectionatelyJohn Muir
