Washington D.C.Jany 21/1910My dear Mr Muir-How can we thank you for that generous box of christmas 'goodies' - they are fine and I know it would do your heart good to see our darling babies get their little [illegible] chairs and indian baskets and say "come on Dad lets have a feast with Mr Muir" - The 'grown ups' are not far l[illegible]ed and we do so enjoy your kind thoughtfullness -You know how dear to our hearts is John Muir - we love him - we wish it were in our power to have [moves?] of [this?] actual presence of our t[illegible]st of friends - come to us - we do so again in this - and I assure you again that no friend of all my life is dearer to[illegible] than you -If I had se[illegible] enough to make money I would rush it immediately - make my pile then call John Muir and we would go to the mountains - where all care is left behind and two souls' (if you will allow me) would live with nature - one teaching the other 04688
