Martinez, Jan. 1, 1909.Dear Mr Anderson,I'm delighted to hear from you, & I heartily thank you & Robert for your kind greetings & wishes for the new year. With all my heart I wish you the same. Come & make me a visit & bring Robert. I'm alone in the big house. You have doubtless gathered lots of health & Dante on your travels in Italy. What terrible news fills the papers from that beautiful fire land!Your Hetch Hetchy protest is [capital?] Try to get Prof. Rolfe to write one like it.Hoping to see you ere longI am faithfully yoursJohn Muir
