John Muir



Dear Mr Muir-

Mrs Hooker arrived last night and can only remain down here until Wednesday, I had so hoped you could be here, if you find you can bring your work with you for a month, come at any time. Telephone me from Los Angeles and I will meet you at the car here with my little electric.



Mrs H. is winding up the old home down here. The place may be sold while she is abroad. It pulls one's heartstrings to have the dear old place go. I have had nice visits with [Iona?] Gale the writer who lives in Portage and her mother remembers all your family. they are reading your "Boyhood." How I wish you could be here by Tuesday.

Ever cordially

Anna R. Dickey.
