[John Muir]



July 3, 1890

My own Dear Papa, I do hope you are well and warm again, the letter you sent me, I enjoyed reading it very much and it was beautiful. O I wish I could be with you and see the great blue Ocean, and the whales and birds. I hope the sun is bright where you are, and that the fog will go away. It is very warm and nice here. Apples and peaches are saling at a good price. Baby Helen is writing you a little litter too. The grass has turned yellow, and the roads are dusty and it is summer but I supose it is mudie where you are. there is a bee hive in the dining room [chinane?] and they



sting me very very much and it hurtes. the cat and carlo is all right and have learned to agree. Baby Helen is very very sweet.

Your loving little girl

Annie Wanda Muir.
