C[harles] S[prague] Sargent
Jamaica Plain, Mass., December 13, 1906.
My dear Muir:
Are you dead or asleep at the switch? or what has become of you? It is months since I have heard from you. Please make some sign and let me know that you are well and that your daughter is better or I hope entirely recovered.
I had rather hoped to go to South Africa this winter to get away from the cold and to see some more of the world, but I have had too much to do here in the Arboretum with Crataegus and other things to make it possible to get away, so I am staying at home to my great regret and trying to clear up the great amount of material which has been accumulating here of late. After this, if I have luck, I do not want to pass any more winters in this sort of climate. When are you coming east and why don't you go and see the Andes?
John Muir, Esq.,
Jamaica Plain, Mass.
