John Muir


[1]Dear Mr Muir,I am so glad you had so lovely a motor trip. I have had six rather lonely weeks with all good friends away but Ellie flitted in this week bringing cheer and much doings. I am sorry I had planned going north just as Mrs Hooker comes on a visit too but all plans are made for spending Wednesday, Thursday & Friday of next week at Hotel Stewart S. F. and then05246

[2]going on to Mendocino Co. where Donald is if I can be accommodated. If not I may follow your suggestion and try a cabin in Muir Woods. The name sounds inviting. the heat has been intense lately I shall be glad of a whiff of the sea near the Golden Gate and a glimpse of S. F. since the earthquake. When I am settled I shall answer your good welcome letter in decent fashion. Meanwhile, affectionate regardsA. R. DickeyAugust 10th
