1[letterhead]Oct 28th 1902.John Muir. Esq.My Dear SirPresuming that you will be pleased to hear from one who accompanied you about 1872 on one of your tips from Yosemite Valley to Lake Mons I now yield to inclination I have had every time during the past thirty years I have been reminded of you. Some of these reminders have been magazine articles I have read over your signature. Once I met a relitive of yours on a railroad train between New Haven and New York. Three years ago coming down the Rhine in Europe I030852[letterhead]became acquainted with a journalist by the name of Archibald who said he belonged to the science club with you. The Bohemia in San Francisco, which address I shall use in directing this letter. A few days since I chanced to pick up a book in the house of a friend here entitled "The Mountains of California" by John Muir and it reads so much like a diary of the good and instructive time we enjoyed together I felt impelled to drop you a few lines. As you may remember, our party consisted beside yourself of an english tourist by name Mr Oxland,03085
