Mt. Wiliamson - (when we lay out all night in the rain without blankets--quite in "The John Muir style" as one to whom I told it remarked) and altogether we had a glorious time, and only came out at last because we had to.But just here it occurs to me that now I have a home, a house and a wife, there is no reason why I should not ask people to come and visit us: and so I will. If you and Mrs. Muir would think of such a thing Mrs. Brown and I should be very happy indeed to entertain you for as long a time as you could spend with us. We have a big sitting room with a big fire place in it; and we could, if you wished, ask in some of your friends here, and have a cozy evening and a real nice quiet time. Give it a thought, anyway: perhaps you will come.Very sincerely yoursBolton A. Brown. 02176
