John Muir


[letterhead]April 23.My dear Mr MuirTwo letters have come for you and I consulted J.D. (not Rockefeller) as to whether they had better be forwarded to the desert or Martinez, and he says decidedly the latter. I was going to send them to Daggett, but I [am?]10003 a mere woman, so I yield.I hope you had a comfortable journey and that Miss Helen reached the end of it without too great fatigue.Things are much the same in this [house?] as when you left it, excepting that there is a large hole in it, that one John Muir did fill. No one else fits into it and so it remains empty.Our affectionate remembrances and hopes that you will come back before long.Katharine Hooker.
