John Muir


Jan 20/10.My dear Mr. Muir-You will have seen in the papers news of the death of Mrs. Graham in South Pasadena. Mother went south at once, and may be there a week or more. You may not have heard of the death of our Aunt Maria Whitney yesterday - of pneumonia - this is also a sudden blow to us - I am04687

very glad she lived long enough to have the content of seeing the book of her brother's life completed before the end came for her too -I looked hopefully for you Tuesday- If you drop down on me, you will find a welcome ready, tho' you will miss my mothers presenceand cheer while I am so much away and so busy studying in the house hours-Are you being blown about to night by this old storm we are getting?With warm regards,Marian Hooker.
