[4]The Tallest tree!Yours affectionatelyKatharine Hooker[1]1435 Willard St.San Francisco, Sept. 22Dear Mr MuirWhen we did not get a letter from you last Saturday, we suspected that you had gone to call on Helen.Marian thinks we cannot go to04590 [2]you next Sunday, because she has some special business on hand, which is arduous, but I think we might visit you the following Sunday (the third of October) if you want to have us. Drop us a line the first of the week and let us know if we[3]shall go to you. I am glad to hear Helen is well and contented. It must be hot enough down there now to suit even her taste for warm weather.I hope you have done a lot more writing. Perhaps you have [illegible] planned that article about
