Louie [Strentzel Muir]
Coleman HouseNew YorkJune 1, 1893Dear LouieI received Helens Portage letter & yours of May 19 yesterday at the Century rooms & was glad to learn that all was well with you though you had been sick. I suppose it was rheumatism that troubled you but by common care that should vanish with warm weather. I too was sorry not to see grandma before leaving, The Sellers remembered her as the sweetest old lady they ever saw. I failed to see the Erwins before leaving Chicago. Keith I told you left Chicago the day I arrived & waited for me here. Now he is in a hurry to go to Spain, wants to leave next Saturday but I fear I can’t get my article finished so soon & may have to let him go, & meet him in London or somewhere. He is in an eternal fussy hurry & though I’m willing to wait on him he seems unable to wait for me. I had a grand day with Johnson & Gilder yesterday. Spent the forenoon at the rooms & was introduced to everybody. Went to lunch with Johnson & two other Century men at Actor Booths club. Then went with Johnson to Central Park & what think you I found there one of the grandest01672
