John Muir


[John Muir]


Helen [Muir Funk]


Home, Nov. 20, 1913

Darling Helen,

I'm so glad to know that you are really getting better in spite of the deadly ill fortune that seems to have dogged your path all the way through life.
Make a good fire place in the new house. with double thickness of brick to guard against fire in the high desert winds. And supply yourself with warm clothing both for bedding and day wear.

Ever devotedly your

affectionate father


[Martinez, Calif.]
