#242 [illegible]k St.,San FranciscoFeb. 20 1914.Dear Mr. Muir:-If possible before we sail, March 3rd. we are going to spend part of a day with you. I would like (if you do not object) to have a little more data for a sketch in our "Mid Pacific Magazine". However, should this be distasteful to you, I'll not write a word. Our people are great lovers of nature, and regard you with affection-In view of your recent illness and the desirability of a change - wouldn't a trip to Hawaii do you good!I have a big house in the Ch[illegible] section of Hawaii, some 1000 feet up the mountain-side, in the woods, where I live.Here on 8 acres rather overgrown I live almost alone. My wife will be east for about a year, my children at school, and you would be as much alone as you wished, unadvertised and free from intrusion.I keep a boy, and our meals are simple,05712
