John Muir


[letterhead]MondayDear Mr MuirHere is the second thick letter I have forwarded to you.We speak of you often, and hope you keep well and are happy. Marian came this morning and she looks quite blooming and cheerful.05182

As for me. I almost wept when I discovered those two tree pictures of mine were not in the Yosemite book! It couldn't have been the other volume you intended them for, was it?We are doing a little reforesting in the garden which I shallinsist on your approving. The days are so busy I scarcely take time to draw anything but the shortest sort of a breath.Am affectionately yoursKatharine Hooker
