John Muir



for in the winter it is hard to keep this comfortable.
I wonder where you are! Are people there any nicer than we are? and do they pin fresh roses on you every day?
Fred is well and joins me in the very kindest regards as always

Hark the Lark.

My dear Mr Muir, _

I think of you very often, look at your splendid picture and then read once again some of your Boy stories, and then it seems



as if you were not so far away.
We are spending the summer between Live Oak, Sierra Madre and "320". Willock faithfully keeps the garden blooming, although I know he misses so much his Beloved Master


and Mistress of the Manor_
Nothing, as yet, has been done to sell - but I am sure in the early winter Mrs H. will need her furniture to furnish the new San Fancisco Home.
Fred and I plan to take a much smaller place.
