My dear Mr. Muir-
First one thing then another has come to prevent Mr. Sperry and me from going to see you and Helen- and now hear through Mr. Keller that you are going to Arizona again Do you go at once or will we have a chance
to go and see you the first of the new year.
I saw Marian on Saturday and she left that night for Los Angeles
She is very well now and much better ever since her illness last summer for which we are all most thankful.
Marian Ellie and I had a delightful month at Tahoe as you know
A very quiet time- spending our days in the pine woods while I told them of our fine mountain trip to Tuolumne Meadows, and the wonderful trip over Cathedral Pass.
Mr. Sperry and I want more- we didn't have half enough and are planning to go again the middle of August for several weeks- and
