[John Muir]


Helen [Muir Funk]


Home Ap. 18, 1914Darling Helen. I'm getting better Ive gained in weight & am hard at work on Alaska travels that I hope ere long to get together & carry to the mountains for final revision.The picture you have sent me of your desert spring beauty recalls the views I enjoyed of it long ago ere your happy family was dreamed of. I rejoice with you in your happiness & ever shall as long as your devoted father is above dear mother earth. Write oft & long & let me know when you need something.
