Dear Mr Muir

We miss you. Are you doing the same for us?
The red leaves in all their beautiful shadings have come, and are to be kept for Christmas. The sprig of libocedrus I [consider?] mine.



Fanny Canfield is stopping with us now, and Saturday evening there will be two very pretty young girls to spend the night here. So you see the house keeps full, which is a fond thing.
Mrs Hark- the Lark Jones, all along of


your absence, finds no one to finish out her coffee with her at the breakfast table, and so is left to drink it alone in sadness and gloom.
For this and various reasons it looks as though your duty would lead you back here before long. I am going to


Los Angeles
