Helen [Muir Funk]
Home Monday Aug. 31, 1914Darling Helen: We heard from Tom last evening that Wanda & the new boy are doing well & all are happy. The family may be united here in two weeks or so.One of the men gleaned a box of belated pears which Tom took to the express company yesterday I hope they will be found worth while.All goes fairly well here. Am having a lot of book shelves made in the hall & in your room and hope to get my books arranged in useful order. Have had a carpenter at work two weeks I'm slowly gaining strength After a sudden chill had to quit writing but hope to get to work again after Mrs Parsons returns from her outings in the Yosemite & National glacier parks. Ever your loving father John Muir
