October 2, 1905
Dear Mr. Muir:
Your letter, telling the story of your afflictions, has pained me inexpressibly, but I am glad you are out in the wild, where if any comfort can come to you, it will come from the free, wind-blown, arid land which we both love.
I hope your daughter may soon recover and that you yourself may gain strength from the pure desert air.
Always cordially yours
