Helen [Muir]



Mar, 18 1908

Darling Helen,

I got into my old home yesterday morning & am a new man - another fellow altogether from the poor ghost of the late Grippe - & Groan days. Nothing like going up a canon. How delightfully reviving the snow-coold pine-sifte[d?] Sierra air. I'll be back home by the end of the week probably get the trade papers completed & then straight for thee.
My kindest regards to the Van Dykes Heaven protect you Darling -

John Muir

Am feeling fine. No cough or sneeze worth mention
