[Katharine Hooker]


[ca March] 1911Dear Mrs HookerWhat a fine heart-bath you are having! When I returned from the station Mr Hooker was entertaining Mr Burroughs & party with the star photographs millions of suns full of unquenchable radium. Nevertheless the weather here is far from warm. though as you know there are spots here & there that never grow cold. Sunday I went to Pasadena with my friends the Sellers intending to stay only a day, but staid a week to try to get some Yosemite out of me & some sound sleep in. Was successful. The second morning slept like death & had to be awakened about 9 o'clock.Mr. O Melving is coming Saturday to take me through the park.Remember me to all who love youFaithfully John Muir[in margin: All goes as usual at 325. [illegible] I see by the newspapers that Hetch Hetchy is likely to cost us many more hard battles. No end of worry as well as sound work ---]


[Pasadena, Calif. ?]
