knowing how much Mr. Brown thought of you, and knowing you were not here, I took the liberty of sending in your name, a bunch of beautiful M. Niel Roses.I said nothing to any one, simply sent the roses with a card on which wrote the words__"DevotedlyJohn Muir-"Forgive me if you consider this an offense. I only write to explain to you, so if the family should acknowlege the same, you would understand. I hope you are well, and happy. When you come south I should love to see you.
