Marion R. Parsons
My Dear Mr. Muir:-
The Atlantic Monthly came promptly and we thank you very much for it as well as for the friendly words of your letter. When the book has taken shape we hope you will come again to the "high house". Maybe when the stormy nights come and the wind blows cauld, and blows your lantern out on the way to supper, you will think of us
snug and fast in the warm belt!
Seriously we would suggest that if at any time you feel like returning to your Berkeley workshop, we could easily enough make room in our library for such books as you might need, by moving upstairs many shelves full of our books that are not in use. We would be very glad indeed to do this and be many times compensated for the slight trouble it would cause by the very great pleasure we take in having you with us.
Hoping that the book is progressing according to your desires and with all good wishes from Edward and myself,
Marion Randall Parsons
[San Francisco ?]
