A.20th August 1913.Dear Mr. MuirI have just received your letter of July the 2nd and am glad to hear some of the photos will be of some use to you to illustrate the book on your travels; when it is out I hope you weill send me a copy it will be very interesting in more ways than one and a good remembrance of our trip up [River?] Mombasa.It is very kind of you indeed to send me such a kind invitation, but I am afraid my [friend?] wont allow me to pay you a visit for the San Francisco world fair; though am anxious to pay a visit to America Some day, I must wait until better times; my voyage to Europe will probably be postponed for a month or so, but I hope to be with my mother for X'mas and am very anxious about it, it is over 8 years since I left Switzerland for the last timeHere things are going fairly well and I can't grumble about my [heart?] which could be worse but a change will make a new man of me if the winter does not affect05518
