The GarretLos Angeles, April [24?]. 1911My dear Mr MuirThe morning after you left us I went away bright and early to Balboa to join Ellie and Maude for a week. It was a happy week, a [pinetree?]-like rest!But today I came back, and where are you? I can't tell you how empty the house seems without you. Your room is swept and ungarnished, the garret hollow and bleak, and there is no John Muir to sit beside me at the table and give me the sensation of a friendly, affectionate presence in this discord09996
