S. F. Sept 23Dear Mr MuirI was much disappointed to have to postpone starting south, but the dentist is cautious and of course I want to be on the safe side.As far as I can see now, I ought to be able to leave here04882
Thursday evening. Could I procure your sleeping berth for you, when I get mine, and so save your having to come and do it? I could get two lower berths opposite each other. Let me know if you would like me to do this.I am glad you feel like going down with me. You are a valliant soldier!AffectionatelyyoursKatharine Hooker
