Some [prints?] that Mr. Gannett did not take - Some of those I was most desirous of having did not come out at all - Especially those taken from the summit of Mt. Whitney- As I don't know whether it was a bad film or bad developing that ruined them, I can't spend my math satisfactorily! We hear rumors of your being in Los Angeles this month - My Mother and Father join us girls
My dear Mr. Muir-
A very great pleasure came to me in the form of your book - and the pleasure was the more keen when I saw the photograph of you and read the inscription that went straight to my heart and made me long again for our party in the mountains- I have been reading the book
with great interest - it makes me homesick for the places we have seen this summer - and I can hear your voice telling us the things we wanted so much to know as we went on our way or sat under the trees. I cannot express how much it has all been to me - Ellie came home yesterday, and since her arrival we have been talking steadily about those there
perfect weeks, going over every delightful incident - The last of my photographs have just been developed - Now I am having them printed, and hope this week to send off a package of them to you- Some of them are very clear and good, but some that are not so clear and good, but some that are not so clear I shall enclose because they are of the mountains and may be of
in wishing you could stay wit us when you are here. but I suppose you have so many friends here that we could hardly expect that pleasure —
Very sincerely yours,
Marian O. Hooker
