[4]week or two of house-warming in it. My mother is inspecting the progress down there today -I saw Helen Sperry in Berkeley just before I came home, looking well and flourishing with her two bonny children - the boy is very fair, in contrast to the little dark-eyed[1]325 N. 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. I find Stickeen waiting for me, and am04504 [2]enjoying reading it again and remembering the happy days in the mountains that had their share in bringing it to me, and the evening around the camp fire when you told us the story. I am so glad it has at last been brought out in book form, so that it can be had[3]without burrowing into bundles of old magazines. 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 [5]daughter. Helen plans a summer vacation with her husband [and?] children, on early training of the little ones to the mountains - I hope we shall have a glimpse of you here before long-Very sincerely yoursMarian Hooker04504
