John Muir


[letterhead]January 26. 1911My dear Mr. Muir,Different things have cooperated to prevent out on starting on our trip to Mexico, among them the indisposition of my daughters, both of whom have been enough out of sorts to prohibit travelling for pleasure, and now Judge [Levitt?] advises me that he will be in Los Angeles about ten days hence, and I cannot be absent04945

while he is here. However, I hope that a month hence we can definitely fix our plans for the trip. I suppose you are not inconvenienced by this delay and that our trip when we take it will be all the more enjoyable because of the the long period of pleasurable anticipation of it.I saw Mr. Keith the other day. He is some better, but still in poor health. I wish he were able to go with us to Mexico. It would do him as well as us much good.I notice that the revolutionary troublesin Mexico still continue. This seems to be favorable period for revolutionary movements everywhere.With best wishes I amMost sincerely yoursWm. F. Herrin
