[Charlotte H. Kellogg ?]


Martinez March 15, 1914My dear friend,Your loving kindness is boundless in every direction. I wish I was able to put to use your kind plans for my comfort. I dont know when the next club meeting is to be, but anyhow I mean to pay you a visit as soon as I feel able. I'm getting well & fortunately am able for pen work though the amount ahead of me seems endless. Mrs Parsons comes from Berkeley a day or two each week to typewrite which is a great help. But I should have a secretary at work all the time.I was sorry to have to miss Dr Branner's club dinner

your husband is to be [illegible]ed for his admirable capacity for hard work without rest. I hope to see you all at Berkeley.I had a delightful visit the other day from dear Anderson- another brave worker.Give yourself no trouble care for blessed Jean's right development. As well fuss about the proper development of a rose bud.The tie came safely & has its place here with the countless others you have sent everyone of them in finest good taste.I'm at work on old Alaska notes, Don't know whether anyone will care to read them. Anyhow I had a glorious godly time up there. With love to you all threeJohn Muir
