A. & U. Hospital Hot Springs Ark 3/10/13Dear Mr Muir:I recd your letter of Mar. 4th this a.m. Communicating with the office of the Mountain Vally Springs Co. Club I learned the letter you mentioned had been returned some two or three days ago. I found however your book "Stickeen" awaiting me for which accept my sincere thanks.Being unable to write at that time my letter was dictated to a stenographer at said Club Bldg. She had no plain paper but used the paper advertising the Cos. Business hence the very natural mistake in addressing me there.In writing you I did not look for corrections or elimination of any part of "The Story of Your Boyhood". I simply desired to [acquaint?] you with facts as known to me. for in my somewhat varied experience I appreciate any fact or circumstance that discloses the good or better qualities of our fellow05392
