[Helen & Wanda Muir]
Martinez, Nov. 27- 05
Darlings I was delighted to get your letters showing all well & merry with snowstorms & tourists good bad & atrocious. I hope ere this the deeds sent by registered mail on the 20 or 21st have been signed and are on way back.
David has payed rent & gone to the seagull grove. Will also paid rent. Helen, I saw Engineer McHughs & his wife last Saturday, also Miss Sassafras, etc. McHughs was very glad to hear of your health. Mr Coleman will pay you a visit & go out to the forest on his way East. He will probably leave here next Saturday or Monday on the limited which will stop for him by order. All are well. Last night we had the first heavy shower of the season. Heaven bless you. Remember me to the Stevensons.
Your loving father John Muir
