Of course the trustees have no right to any compensation, but I thought a few dollars to the old church would be a good way to show satisfaction etc. So much for business, & now come on out & see some paintings & some trees hills, the ocean & some scenery not quite so much on the pancake pattern as fair Nebraska & not quite so sand blasty. Fares to the Christian Endeavor Convention will be low & no great inroad will be made on your little pile. Louie & the children say "Tell her to bring Helen." Your young! old schoolmate Miss Thayer is here also Davids daughter Carrie, & his Annie is coming soon. It will prolong & enrich your life & you must just come. Thats certain.Im pegging away at literature Have the grippe or bronchitis, I have headache & am stupid. So goodnightEver your loving brother John Muir
