Home May 26, 1909.Darling Helen, Your letter of the 22d was received yesterday & I immediately drew a check for the sum Mr Van Dyke wants, feeling pleased that we have the privilege of obliging him after he has so kindly done so many good deeds in our anxious days of trouble.I have been at Del Monte attending the meetings of the Women's Clubs, & much against my will had to address the whole for[illegible]dable array! Think of it.I saw all our Pacific Grove folk. They are well & comfortably situatedI'm glad you are regaining your health so speedily & that you will write everyday. no mater how brieflyEver affectionately our fatherJohn Muir
