01736New YorkThursday, Sep. 28, 1893.[letterhead]Dear Louie- I had hoped to be in Chicago ere this but have been waiting for Mr Johnson who is hard pressed with work on account of the absence of Mr Gilder. Johnson thinks it is very important that I go to Washington to see Hooke Smith & the Chairmen of land committees & your telegrams point the same way Mr Gilder got back last evening & Johnson & I will start for Washington tomorrow remain there a day or two, then go on together to Chicago where Mrs Johnson now is. I mean to stop only a day or two at Chicago Then go to Portage & then straight home. The days spent here have not been wholly unprofitable as at the Century rooms & the Clubs I have met some interesting people. One evening as I sat at dinner with Johnson at the club called The Players I noticed a grayhaired man looking hard at me. Presently he came across the dinning room & asked if this was John Muir
