Mrs. Hooker wished me to thank you for the books. She will write later when her mind is more at rest.
Please give my love to Helen and once again
325 W. ADAMS STREET
Dear Mr. Muir:
Your books arrived in Los Angeles but Mrs. Hooker is in San Francisco on account of Marian's health. Marian had a week ago Monday at the
Lane Hospital a serious operation. The worst is over and she is doing remarkably well and all anxiety is over but it has been very hard for Mrs. Hooker.
We all enjoyed your visit so much you afforded Mr. Hooker
a fine Holiday and he very often speaks of the pleasure he had with you. You represent such a different idea of life. You get everlasting pleasure from nature and life in every form and his pleasure is a momentary thing.
