Martinez, California, Aug. 11, 1909.Dear Miss Barrus:I've just returned from the Sierra Club outing, & as none of my mail was forwarded I've just now received your card from Middletown showing you had got safely home. What a fine telling trip you three have had though I am sure it might have been still better had you let me plan it. Had you been with us all July you would have seen the grand Hetch Hetchy & the Yosemite also & the Merced Canon & lakes & glaciers as well as those of the Tuolumne, & fine views of all the forest zones from giant Sequoias to the summit dwarfs - etc etc & got really acquainted with a lot of capital mountaineers.I was particularly disappointed not having you three at the ranch for a few days quiet visit, instead of an automobile rush of a few confused minutes with mixed company. I'm going to see Helen tomorrow.- She is now about as well as ever- Then back to the old den here & try to write. Give my love to John & Mrs Ashley & believe me ever faithfully yoursJohn Muir
