My dear Mr. Muir-
"The mountains of California" reached me last night, and I am so happy and pleased to have it. Thank you so much for sending it to me, and for remembering that I did not have it. it will go on my book-case beside "Our National Parks" when I finish reading it, and both books are the most precious ones I have.
I found your first letter waiting for me, when I reached home- the day after seeing you, and I have been meaning to answer it- but our [servant?] left us and I have been very busy doing house-work. I do think it is it is so good of you to take such an interest in our next summers trip, and we will go to see you when we get back from the mountains next summer and be as unhurried as trees. You may be very sure it was the greatest pleasure to m[illegible]
and to me to see you that rainy day, and we both regretted our engagements in San Francisco that night. I am much surprised to hear Mr. Gannett is going to Ma[illegible]s, and I hope he will enjoy the trip as much as [illegible] [illegible] did - but she [went?] for pleasure and he is going on what you rightly call [that?] dismal arithmetical [census?] business. Mr. Gannett and Dr. Merriam call me Helen as well as Mr.
