[letterhead]Sept. 16 1913My very Dear Muir,What a long time since seeing or hearing from you. I can't stand it any longer so write in hopes to hear from you.I am much pleased that our Board of Education have named one of our schools for John Muir. Seldom is such an honor conferred upon a live man they just wait until he has passed on so he could not object if he would or glory in the honor. I am so pleased because I know it will be an inspiration to the children, just as it is always an inspiration to me, to have in front of me a large picture of you and on my left a plaster of Paris cast. I can at any time talk our trip over, and recall many grand thing you have said as well as a few good jokes.05547
