[Katharine] Hooker & Marian


Home on the hill.Oct. 20 1909Dear Mrs Hooker & Marian:How are you getting through the big Parlulo show? & how are all the folk at Los Angeles I had a glorious ride through the forests. Never before have seen the Indian summer colors so rich & varied. The President I also enjoyed. The merriest man I ever saw & he made all his company merry. The birds & squirrels & deer were half charmed & frightened. Ballinger I also liked & the H. Hy. scheme seems doomed.Just before leaving the park I caught a severe bronchial cold sleeping in a dusty garril & am slowly growling & crowing & eroding a way down to my right lung, & getting able to speak a little scotch Hope to be well in a week or two. Helen is married- honeymooning at RiversideEver faithfully yours John Muir


[Martinez, Calif.]
