My dear Friend Muir

The terrible calamity that has befallen California increases rather diminishes in horror
I [am?] that your neighborhood has not been disturbed I am very anxious about you and your family as well as other dear friends in various parts of California. very many in San francisco.
It is my earnest wish and prayer that you and your family may be safe guarded through the present danger by the same wise providence that has watched over you in the past your old friend.
