Martinez, May 6, 1912Dear Mrs HookerYou will find the missing trees in the new edition of the Mountains of California a copy of which goes to you today by mail.That you & Marian, celestial twins, are going north about the time I'll be going south is according to the eternal unfitness of mundane things. We must look, it seems, somewhere in the sky for a permanent meeting place. Heavens! What long unblazed trails through starry space friends have to trace to get together. Anyhow let's be hopeful & grateful for the good ante-death days we have enjoyed.I took a dusty sore throat cold in my den about a week ago, and until today haven't been able to speak above a choking whisper. Am now getting better.Ever affectionatelyJohn Muir
