[in margin: Florence Willard]Pasadena, CaliforniaThursday January 26, 1911.Dear Dear Mr Muir,Mrs Hooker brought me a wonderful surprise today from you, and I am going to try to tell you at once how dear it was of you to send it to me. I don't believe anything hurt worse than to lose our books and ever since the fire I have gone around thinking of this or that treasured volume that I no longer had. I think one can miss books as much as people, don't you? And now! Now I am going to get some of those that I lost again as well as some that I have always desired, and when I look at my bookshelf I'm going to say those are from Mr Muir!Father has been buying dictionaries, encyclopedias, and standard sets, so the books I buy will be almost entirely single volumes that I have had before and learned to love, or others that I have long wanted, such as Kenneth04946
