San Sorenzo 3/26/92Mr John Muir:My dear Mr MuirYour note of yesterday reached me this morning & have me great pleasure. The hope of meeting you once more & listening to your descriptions & explanations, makes, of this, a red letter day to me. Such an informal conversational address as you suggest, moreover, is precisely what I should of all prefer. And now I am moved to ask if you will not fix a date for this great f[illegible]. We are as you know a fruit growing community & after the first of May the busy season is upon our orchard [illegible]. About that time also I am ex-01564pecting to be absent on a visit among my friends at the est. Can you not give us the pleasure during the month of April? I would suggest Thursday evening the 21st inst. That would give the people moonlight for their home going; & in other respects would be very favorable. Any other date after the 17th, however, which would accommodate you, would be agreeable to us. It will be a kindness if you will take the matter into your own hands & notify me as to the date. Will you also kindly state to me the terms of which you will come. Hoping to hear from you soon and favorably I remainSincerely yoursF. B. Perkins.01564
