John Muir


[Helen & Wanda Muir]


Mays June 4. 6 A.M. 1906

Darlings I'm going to my paleontology this morning as usual but this week or next will I suppose have to be the last Berkeley work for the season
Saturday I mean to go to Stanford to see what Sig & Lep books are in the library there.
Yesterday after writing you the rain began once more to "pour in torrents" & I had to wring & mp the spacious garret floor. Tom came after that chambermaid job was done & looked at par[illegible]ons chimneys etc He is going to the city today. Tell me Helen what you want me to bring for you Keep Wanda as long as possible & be very very careful of your health & everything when she leaves you. Of course I'll come flying as soon as the Tom trouble is o'er

Ever lovingly your father John Muir
