Hooker [family]


Tuesday Aug. 31. [1909]Dear Mrs Hooker & MarianCome again next Sunday & get some more peaches & rest & brown scenery, & brighten my Alhambra loneliness The peaches are in the ice-box & they will be just right when you arrive & will all be lost if you don't come. & they are the precious last. There are grapes too, now & figs. & I want your advice about a new book. Say you'll come & I'll meet you at the Ferry & conduct you in triumph.Ever faithfully afectionatelyJohn Muir
