Home, Sep. 21, 1908
Tom brought glowing accounts of your good health & good looks, corroborating all your own bright letters. I was just starting for the train for a promised visit to Mr Kent & so did see Mary Van Dyke; for which I am sorry For I wanted to get the chance to show how deeply I felt the debt of gratitude we owe to her father. Tom took her to the train Sunday evening & she should reach Grants Pass this afternoon.
I had a charming time with the Kents, visited the Muir Woods & Muir tavern & adjacent region & got home last eve. & now for work. I'm sending deed for your signature. return it as soon as you can There are three others to be made out soon, & quite a lot of other confounded business to hold me here, but always I'm yours when you need me. Remember me to the Van Dykes & Funks.
Ever loving John Muir
