[John Muir]


Pacific Grove, Calif.,Sept. 9, 1910.Dear brother John:Your letter was received yesterday, and I was glad to hear from you, also to tell you that I still keep gaining in strength and hope soon to be as well as usual.Joanna will likely have written telling you of our brother Dan's great sorrow and loss. It is good that she happens to be there. She and the girls can take care of little Marial and make the home as confortable as possible for a time at least. Mary, also, was there for a little time.All of the folks here are well, as usual. Ette is so much better for some time now. Mrs. Westlake is also here at present. Kenneth has gone back to Los Angeles. The school would commence this week again.You will have heard how Helen is getting on. I have not heard from her yet. I must write to her soon. You were gone a long time before I left the Valley. I suppose you will be very busy with your writing as usual. I had a good visit with Wanda and her family before leaving, as well as the others of the clan. I hope you keep well. I wonder if we will see you here again some day, when you can make a longer stay than last time. I know we will all be glad.Affectionately your sister,Sarah [Muir Galloway]04874
