[Katharine] Hooker


Den Monday Jan. 9, 1910Dear Mrs Hooker Ill gladly come as you say, flying on the wings of - of [Calhoun's?] [illegible]I'll be in Berkeley most of the week [at?] the Mills Building getting some typewriting done. I will try to start early from fear of getting lost in your chaotic F[illegible] wilderness.Ever faithfully yrs.J M Dr Mrs H & Marian, Here's a charming morning calm sunshine & frost. "glorious Hooker weather" I said as I looked out of my den window & saw a superb growth of white crystal ice-ferns adorning the tin roof. Fine for Marian, this with holiday rest will drive away the tickly stragglers of the flocks of small couch folk to other pastures or perhaps to other worlds.Now I suppose it's time for holiday greetings, mostly easily said. But for those most loved, no words good enough have yet been invented, so I'll just wish you god luck for the New Year & all the years & foreverSo devoutly prays your friendJ. M.Jan. 1, 191004678
