[4]I shall be most interested to hear all you will tell me of the Hetch Hetchy affair, when I see you again. I hope you drove long secure nails at every opportunity!Marian sends her love and so do I.It was a great surprise to hear of Helen's marriage. I had no idea it was to be so soon, from what you said when we were last with you.Affectionately yoursKatharine Hooker[1]San Francisco,Oct. 22nd[write [illegible] live to say you are better]Dear Mr MuirI am so sorry to hear you are ill. It was cruel for that wicked cold to catch you just as you [were?] leaving your forests and mountains having had a happy time in them. I should like to know if you are taking care of yourself, or being taken care of, for you surely need it. Such a cold is not to be trifled with.04612
