[John Muir]


Carmel, 3rd April -[1910]My very dear friend-This business of packing up and then unpacking - of shutting up the house, and opening up an other - is all to blame!I have meant a dozen times to thank you for the book, which I have the greatest pleasure in possessing- and especially to thank you for putting the picture in the front.And how we did enjoy04742

your letter!If I were going out at all, [we?] should be waling in upon you some week end; but for these next three months I am to be quietly domiciled in this wee cottage, cutting and sewing and generally preparing to follow Wanda — at least one step! Please tell herMr. Kellogg comes down week ends - I am being brave - or reckless! enough to let him go back to his beloved bachelors in the [illegible] times.I get lonesome for him here but never for any other place- such days of wild flowers and incomparable skies and waves! If your cold isn't every scrap gone, pack your grip and come straight down-None of my notes, not even that to Helen, has been written - but now I hope to have a little more time.I wish things were arranged so that we might meet oftener. Many thank again, always affectionately Charlotte Kellogg
