[in margin: J D Hooker
Los Angeles]

Dear Mr Muir

It is with deepest regret that I hear of your great loss the companion of a lifetime - endeared to you all by many loving kindnesses.
I know Mrs Hooker and Marian will be distressed to hear it - they are in San Francisco and I have sent your letter to them - with sincere sympathy believe me

Faithfully yours

J. D. Hooker



[Los Angeles]
