John Muir


[John Muir]


Helen [Muir Funk]


Martinez, March 6, 1913

Darling Helen,

I'm glad to know you are really better, but you must get some good help in your housekeeping Keep trying over & over again as most everybody has to do.
I know how well & willingly you cook but its hard work at best however lightened by affection.
Anyhow I'm in the midst of endless Alaska notes and their regular arrangement in readiness for copying is still far from complete. Thus consuming more than double the time I counted on. I'm so glad Buel and the blessed boys are so well. My love to you all. Write very often.

Your devoted father.


Martinez [Calif.]
