Mr John Muir

Martinez Cal

Dear Sir

I have yours of the 2nd and will as soon as I can conviently send the goods to Willcox have them shipt to you to Martinez. I am pleased to hear of favorable result of your wife. I regret very much that your stay here could not have been prolonged particular on the act of your Daughters for I am of the belief the result would have been benificial - I also intended showing you some grand mountain senery and making you a camp that would have pleased you and your daughter. At some later date I hope to have the pleasure of entertaining you, also your daughters. Kindly commend me to your entire household and say to them my doors are wide open to them at all times.

Friendly yours etc

H C Hooker
