[letterhead]March 30th 1901My dear Mr. Muir; I sincerely appreciate your kind and warm letter of the seventeenth. The say that old friends are the best friends and I find by long experience that this is a most true saying. We must hold to our old acquaintances as long as possible, and not let them drop out of our lives simply because time and distance intervene between visits. Yes I remember well my visits to South Indianapolis, and how you fascinated me with your various collections and inventions. What a life of adventure and discovery you have had since those Hoosier days! My days have been a mixture of business and pleasure with a goodly share of the latter well sprinkled in. I left Indianapolis in the spring of 1874 for a week's visit to relatives02852
