Dec 17 
Dear Mr Muir
Did you ever give Mr. Thacher a copy of Stickeen? If not I want to send him one of the copies you gave me.
We miss you. Things
Are much as they were when you went away, excepting that the garret looks empty.
I have only time for a little this morning. I am busy for the poor Willards. Yesterday afternoon their house burned to the ground. The gas company sent a mere boy to remedy some trouble with the gas and he caused an explosion that destroyed the house by fire. Almost nothing could be saved.
[San Francisco, Calif.]
