Direct to East Pasadena, Cal Jany 31 1895

My dear Mr Muir

From all the recent reports that I get from the rebellion in Honolulu I am inclined to think we had better give up or at least postpone the proposed trip to that place. What do you think about it? I have just talked with a gentleman who has returned from there on the last steamer & he thinks the trouble, instead of being over, has but just begun. I would like to see

the Islands but don't care to go them when everything is so unsettled. How do you feel about it? And how is your work coming out?
My head has troubled me very much of late and I fear I shall not return to Chicago as early as I had thought and consequently shall not return to San Francisco for a couple of months yet. Presume we will find much better weather then anyway.
The weather here is delightful bright warm sunshine every day and vegetation so fresh & beautiful. Why can't you bring Mrs Muir, Grandma the children down here for a few weeks it would do them all good & afford us good pleasure. Fay joins me in kindest regards to you all
