MAGEE,JR.THOMAS MAGEE & SONS,Publishers of theReal Estate REAL ESTATE AGENTSCircularTELEPHONE MAIN 710. 6 MONTGOMERY STREETSan Francisco, February 26th, 1900. 189Dear Mr. Muir:Calvary Presbyterian Church Sunday School, in which I have been a teacher for about thirty years, like all good institutions needs help, and needs it badly. You know what this city is, how vice flourishes and everything good languishes. Now, your early training will make you sympathize with us. We want you to lecture on the big trees in aid of the school's funds. You will thus do more good to aid the purchase by the Government of the Calaveras Grove than anything that can be done. Don't say no. Mr. James D. Horsburgh, Superintendent of the School, and Assistant Passenger Agent of the Southern Pacific, is also writing you joining in my request. If you will do this for us I will get even for the great favor, if ever I have a chance. You can take dinner at my house and stay with me all night. That of itself ought to be a big inducement for you to say yes.Yours very sincerelyThos Magee02669
