[1]Marshfield Wis.April 24th 1913John Muir Esq.Martinez Calif.My dear SirA few days ago I saw in the Record Herald of Chicago a brief Sketch of John Muir. As I once knew a John Muir I examined the reference and came to the conclusion that the gentleman referred to was the same John Muir with whom I was acquainted more than fifty years ago at the Wis. University. A vivid recollection of the old days at the University came to me and I felt that I would be delighted to grasp your hand once more and give it a hearty shake.Fifteen years ago I met Prof Butler at his home in Madison. In the course of our conversation he asked me if I remembered John Muir. I responded that the last things that I would forget would be John Muir and his famous clock and bedHe called my attention to the great work05430
