[John Muir]


Helen [Muir Funk]


Martinez, Feb. 12, 1913

Darling Helen,

How are you all The days I hope are as fine as we are having here, warm with but little morning fog. All are well here, & the hills are green, the vineyards yellow with mustard & the almond tree by the house is in bloom. I hope you are all flourishing How is your ranch lawsuit? Are you regaining in your lost flesh? I am. We now have a better cook. The book is taking far longer time to get into shape & so I'm unable to say when I'll get to see you & Mrs Thompson. Write lots of short letters. Kiss the lovely boys for me Love to you all.


your father
