I am very glad to see your handwriting again and very sorry indeed to hear about your daughter and of your anxiety concerning her. I cannot help hoping, however, that Arizona will be of permanent service to her.
I wish I thought I was going to Mexico this winter. There never will be a better time because Mr. Shaw, our Pinus expert, is there for several months now with a home in the City of Mexico and he would be able to show us all the trees, etc. I am afraid, however, that I shall have to stay here at least until the spring in the hope of being able to get some work done which seems to need doing; in fact work is accumulating on my hands much more rapidly than I can take care of it; and either it must be done or abandoned.
Let me hear how your daughter is getting on, and believe me, dear Muir,
Always faithfully yours,
C. S. Sargent
