John Muir


[Charles F.] Lummis


Martinez. Cal., July 7/O3.

Dear Mr. Lummis:-

We are all home again, called bacK by Mrs. Muir's sickness, less than a day after we reached our camp ground in Arizona. She has a severe attaok of pneumonia complicated perhaps, with some obscure chronic trouble which has brought her very low indeed. During the last three days she has rested easily and seems at times hopefully better.
We all look back with pleasure to our visit at your rare and beautiful home, the most novel and characterful and telling in every way of all I have seen this side the continent. None of us will forget it, or the kindness lavished on us all by you all.
Your package of letters of introduction were received at Palm Springs. Wether any of them will be delivered this year I cannot tell, but with kindest regards and best wishes to her. Lummis and Turbese and the two little men, I am

Faithfully yours,
John Muir


Martinez, Calif.
