Hattie Allen Ray
2146 San Antonio AveAlameda, Cal.,Jan. 13, 1910.Dear Mr. Muir,-Ever since Christmas I have been intending to write you and among other things wish you a happy New Year from the Ray family.Allen had a present of a little book which is very dear to his heart. Jessie sent it to him from Honolulu & it is "Stickeen" by John Muir Allen read it aloud to me and we both enjoyed it hugely. It was queer to hear04681 Allen (13 years old) say "Mamma", isn't that told prettily. You can just see that storm."I am going to have it read aloud on next Wednesday at our little reading club- and I am going to try to find some other short article on glaciers to read the same day. I wonder if you can give me a pointer on a good article. I have not been to the library yet to look it up but I shall probably find one easily. The first place I shall look will be in your "Mountains of California". We so often think of you & speak of you & wish you would come over to Alameda some day to see us. But Mr. Ray says when you come in the bank you are usually in a hurry to get back home.With best wishes to you & yours for 1910I am very sincerelyHattie Allen Ray.04681
