Helen [Muir] & Buel [Funk]


Martinez Dec 16 / 12Dear Helen & Buel,I'm always glad to hear you are all well.The chk for Valona land sold by Mr George was received today. Be careful in selling land by acre through George as he wants to buy some himself & is apt to run down the price. The Urbick piece just sold, or rather five acres of it he said was not worth $200 or 40 per acre. I suppose you are attending to taxes.I can't find a jass[illegible] offshoot likely to grow. But Wanda thinks she has one. The other electric right of way not yet settled.It's raining this eve.Ever devotedlyJohn Muir
