Adams St-Los Angeles -May 22/09.[letterhead]My dear Mr. Muir-My arrival at home finds you gone, to my great regret. I am very glad Miss Helen is out of hospital and doing so well, but wish your days here had not ended at the same time.

My summer plans still remain very indefinite, but grow less and less like mountains as July comes nearer- Our cottage at Bolboa is getting under way, and we expect to finish off next month with a daughter.
