Helen stayed only a day at Pasadena, & arrived at her darling desert happy & hopeful & not the least tired.I start for Yosemite with J. B. & Co on the 29th & will report to you.The old Home seems lonelier than ever. How glad I am you like me & wish me luck!My love to Mr Hooker, most pious of mortals, notwithstanding the Pag[illegible]e faces & phrases he makes Ever faithfully yoursJohn Muir
