[John Muir]


Pacific Grove, California,Dec'r 10, '08Dear Uncle John:Many thanks for your big Christmas present, and many more for your kind thought of us all. There is so much I hardly know what to do with it but just now I think I'll keep it a while. It is lovely to know you have a little of the needful in case of an emergency.I wish very much you could think you could come to P.G. if only for a few days - think of the pleasure it would give Mother to have two whole brothers to come and see her. And you three could wander along this rocky shore and if you04336 2.could not by any stretch of imagination think yourselves children rambling about in Dunbar, you could at least talk over old times. You will come some day, won't you?We had heavy rain yesterday but today is beautiful and sunshiny and no mud either for we are on a side hill and it dries quickly after a rain.We are all well here except Mrs. Westlake, who is very ill. They hope to be able to take her to Oakland to a hospital soon.Hoping this finds you well, and thanking you again, I amAffectionately, your nieceAnna G. Eastman.04336
