433 Grove St Milwaukee Wis Aug 2 - 1904John Muir Esq Martinez CalDear Friend JohnI am not given to worrying but I felt a trifle anxious but your letter and the announcement of our banker disposed of it all; after hearing from headquarters he gave me a new check which was shortly afterward forwarded to Charlie, your letter going with it. He was away out on the Indian Peninsula north of Owen Sound in camp. Of course he did not get it very soon and evidently like myself was in no great hurry answering so more than a month has passed However all is well that ends well Charlie was much pleased with the reading of your letter says I must certainly go to see you which I hardly need to be told. My mind has been made up to that for some time past. The question is when. I have decided that it will not be postponed later than Oct 1905 I have some hopes that it may be sooner if I can work some business with it If not on the date mentioned there will be a great missionary convention of Disciples at San Francisco so I want to kill two birds with one stone in either case. You may think this does not speak well for my estimation of the prospective visit03421
