[John Muir]


Daggett, Cal. April 11, 1911.Dear Papas:-Little son and I are both well and happy today in spite of the wind that ie howling out doors. It is warm and the sand is blowing only along the river so it really isnt so bad. The baby is asleep just now but usually he dont sleep as much through the day as he did while he was younger, for he sleeps more at night. He is growing heavy as I find when I lift him, and he is so dear and good all the time.I miss buel but know he will get home as soon as he can.I suppose you have seen him as he said he was going out to Hooker's to see you before he started north. How many more letters shall I send to Los Angeles? Write before yoo start home.Lovingly[illegible][04995]
