1067, Broadway,San Francisco,June 29 - '10.Dear John Muir:I meant to write you again, but am just getting able to use my eyes, after serious trouble.I am sorry about your sister. It is very hard for you - When the years mutiply the sorrows do also.I am loth to give you up. A talk from you, of 35 minutes, say, on the Forests(?) would mean so much, and 04821

be fruitful of so much awakened interest and good on this [illegible]ed, vital, question.Wont you reconsider? It need be any of our dates of meeting between September 20th and next April, to suit yourself. ? ? ? No, I have not "Stickeen!" I have none of your books. They all went in the fire — even your manuscript "Water Ousel" which I had had carefully bound - So many precious things! Thedear letters — all!Keith, you know, is failing. Dear, faithful Keith!I pray this may find things better with you.Your long-time friend,Ina Coolbrith.
