Marian Hooker


Martinez, Jan. 25, [1910].My dear. Marian:I was in the City all last week, getting notes written out. Was anxious to see you, but recollecting how busy you were became conscience-smitten and asked Mr. Colby to telephone I would stay away.I mean to start for Los Angeles and Pasadena and the desert tomorrow, leaving S.F. at 8 P.M. by the Coast road. I have just got word that Col. Sellers, my dear friend, is very ill, and wants to see me.Oh this dust-to-dust death, what sore benumbing sorrow and heart-ache it brings, though so natural and foundationally right and good! With love and sympathy,Ever yours,JOHN MUIR04690
