Helen [Muir Funk]
Garrison, N. Y.,July 14, 1911.Darling Helen:I was very glad to get Buel's telegram and your letter of June 14th, telling that all was well. It is a fine plan to go into the mountains for a month or two, both for yourself and your little son. You cannot be too careful of yourself. I had a telegram from Tom telling that he had heard no trouble as to your health and I feel very much obliged to him for having telegraphed to me.I am still at work here on the
Yosemite Book, hoping to finish It before sailing for the Amazon. I think likely that I will sail about the 15th of next month.[illegible[ I am having a good time but working hard as ever.It has been very, very hot in New York but up here on the Hudson about a thousand feet above the sea, surrounded with green woods even the hot days are quite tolerable.As ever your devoted father,[illegible]
