Martinez, CaliforniaNov. 27, 1909—Dear Cousin:Your letter came yesterday and I am glad to know that you are both in usual good health. We are pretty well here & in Nebraska last news. I had a delightful trip with the President as I did in 1903 with President Roosevelt. Helen so fully recovered her health that she got married over a month ago to Mr Buel Funk in Daggett. Has built a new house there & is very happy. So I'm now alone in the big house here, writing etc Mrs Vernon Kellogg Ive seen once since their return from Italy She is very well. Her address is Stanford California. I'm getting a ten pound money order, half for the poor, & half for your Christmas. With best wishes to all the friends & relations Ever affectionately your CousinJohn Muir04642
