John Muir



Mch 20. 1907

My dear Mr Muir-

This is only my second attempt to write a word since my serious illness & I can only write you a line to explain why I have not written you before - Four weeks ago last Sunday I came down with that terrible disease, Pneumonia which at my age (68) & weight was a serious matter - but with good nursing and a determination on my part to beat it, I came out all right. I am just setting up but am very weak. But I felt I wanted to explain why I had not written to you. Mrs G. was quite ill with severe cold, for two weeks prior to my illness. She joins me in kind regards to you all

Sincerely yours A H Sellers
