[letterhead]February 9th 1900Dr John MuirMartinez - Cal.Dear Sir,I have more reason to remember you than you can have for keeping my name in memory. For since you came to me in the State Fairgrounds with your clocks & asked for a place to set them, I have had great personal interest in your fortunes. It was in Madison, Wisconsin, but I am not sure of the year - was it 1860? I had charge of what was called the "Department of the Fine Arts", and of the large building on the hill which afterwards was a military hospital. I knew you as a student in the University & as a teacher of a district schools. Henry Butler & my [son?] Charles [little?]02662
