[page 2] In California which I would rather visit than your home, and so I hope I can soon again have an invitation. We have several guest rooms in our house, and nothing would please me more than to entertain you and your daughters during the week of the President’s visit to our city, perhaps then I could return with you on May 17th or 18th or some day of the following week. We are very fond of company, and one of my hopes for several years has been that the Muirs would make our house their home during their visits to the City. Papa always


[San Francisco, Calif.]
