[1][letterhead]June 12 1909My dear Muir than Monarch of the mountainsI cannot tell you with what pleasure I read your note of a few days ago I wanted and have been wanting ever since Helen wrote me you had returned to hear your voice - not "from across the canon [diacritic]" but face to face as to Robin - But it is you that are the [genuine?] Robin Hood- In who have to much to give [man?] [illegible]ly toss wealth eve[n?] for your riches -How I wish it were reasonably possible to accept your suggestion and go again into the wilderness [and?] [move?] with the [philosophers?] of the Sierra - And what pleasure it would be twice over since those beautiful and dear daughters are to be with you.Sometimes I almost think I will go since04525
