Los Angeles,July 30, 1910 -Dear Ina CoolbrithI have sent by todays mail copies of my three books which I hope will help to cheer some weary hours & bring back to mind the days of auld lang syne. Its hard to realize the pain of fire losses in the way of cherished keepsakes. I'm down her trying toMiss Ina Coolbrith1067 BroadwaySan FranciscoCal.04839

work hard on another book & so forget or wear out the pain of recent troubles, or at least make the worst of it tolerable As for talks to clubs they are all out of my reach. I'm too old to learn how. Surely my burdens are heavy enough without additional work of any sort. I'm sure you'll excuse Ever faithfully John Muir04839
