Martinez Sep 15, 1910Dear Mrs Hooker. Be of good cheer make the best of whatever befalls keep as near to headquarters as you may & you will surely triumph over the ills of life, its frets & cares with all other vermin of either earth or sky.I'm ashamed to have enjoyed my visit so much. A lone good soul can still work miracles, charm and outlandish crooked zig zag flat into a lofty inspiring olymphus.Do you know these fine verses of Thoreau"I will not doubt for evermore,Nor falter from a steadfast forth,For though the system be turned o'er,God takes not back the word which once he saith."I will, then, trust the love untold Which not my worth nor want has bought,Which wooed me young and wooes me old,And to this evening hath me brought." Ever your friendJohn Muir
