Darling Helen

I'm so glad you are getting on so well in your desert home after so much hard weary moving work from your Hollywood place.
Wanda said yesterday that she had hoped to visit you ere this, but was detained by breaking in a new cook one of the most destructive of all the world's animals!
The book reviews are all very favorable as far as I have seen. Here are a few specimens which you may return after reading

Ever affectionately Your Father

John Muir
