[4]From being my teacher, he has become my friend, & one that [in margin: 954] I take the greatest pleasure in introducing to you. As ever your friend Kate M. GraydonCan I not hope to hear from you sometime? 00872 [1] INDIANAPOLIS Dec. 12th, 1879. 232 N. Alabama St.Dear Mr. Muir, - For two or three years I have thought often of writing to you, indeed, I went so far once as to get your direction & commence a letter. I will now send a few lines introducing to you Prof. Jordan, one of my teachers & best friends. I send this with a little quaking of the heart. What if you should ask “Who is Kate Graydon”? Still I have faith that even ten or twelve years have not obliterated the pleasant little friendship formed
