John Muir


[4]to me?Affectionately yoursKatharine Hooker[1]1435 Willard St.S. F. Feb. 28.Dear Mr MuirI was sure you would like that Universe story.Your Hetch Hetchy dinner must have been delightful. Marian ought to have gone. I hope the time will come when she will be able to raise her eyes from the pages04716

[2]of a medical book.When are you coming to see us? Next Saturday afternoon we have to go to Oakland and shall not be home till late in the evening, but if you could come Sunday morning and stay with us till the next day it would be nice. Or would you prefer to make[3]it the following weekend (as the phrase is now) coming Saturday afternoon, the 12th? That would make a longer visit.I suppose you are working hard on your note books, if the Hetch Hetchy affair is giving you time. Why not bring some of the pages to read
