My dear Mr Keeler

I'm very sorry you had to suffer so much acute pain amid your many cares of every sort. Sincerely sympathizing with you I fondly hope good health will soon be yours once more.
Poor Helen is far from well. She was in bed three weeks with pneumonia pl[illegible]sy etc, developed from one of those miserable influenza colds. Whether I'll have to take her to the dry deserts again a few winter weeks will tell.

cares of every sort. Sincerely sympathizing with you I fondly hope good health will soon be yours once more.
Poor Helen is far from well. She was in bed three weeks with pneumonia pleuresy etc, developed from one of those miserable influenza colds, whether I'll have to take her to the dry deserts again a few winter weeks will tell.
It never occurred to me that a Berkeley Improvement Club would want only one side of a great question when I proposed your taking part on the Hetch Hetchy water scheme for the sake of beauty preservation. But perhaps they are mostly real estate agents. Anyhow, you can do much outside of such a club, & we'll win I think.

With love to your darlings I am ever faithfully yours

John Muir.
