John Muir



Altadena, Oct. 18-1913


Dear Mr. Muir:-

You must think me very unappreciative of your lovely book with your autograph, but indeed I'm not. I was away all summer, spending most of it with "Winnie Skylark" in Detroit - she was so pleased with her copy - & didn't know until a short time ago that my book was waiting for me here at Mary's. She



went east this summer also. Thank you very much, dear Mr. Muir. I'm proud to have the authographed book of your boyhood days.
We are all pretty well. Mr. K. is running the "Call" in S.F. & is up there most of the time. Dorothy & I are going there Monday to be with him a few days.
Ellen is busy with her painting & Wm with his school. When shall we have the pleasure of seeing you down here?
With best regards,

affec. yours

Florence S. Kellogg.
