[John Muir]



ADAMANA, ARIZ. May 23 1906

Dear Papa-

We haven't had a letter from you for ever so long and wish we knew what you were doing and how every thing is going at home. Are you still at the Keeler's or are you back in the valley again? And how are the Bad Land forestry questions getting along.
Jim has been away on a cattle round up so Helen and I have had the guiding business all to our selves for several days. There has been some one here nearly every day but only one or two people at a time
Mr Stevenson's vegetable garden is doing finely and we now have plenty of radishes and green onions which somewhat console us for the lack of oranges. We ate the last of that sack full yesterday.
The weather has been fine for several days and the [illegible]s and obeone flats are blooming with some of the loveliest wild flowers especially calicortus and lerkspurs. 08538

Helen seems perfectly well and happy and is ethusiastialy taking pictures with her new camera.



Adamana, Ariz.
