[letterhead]Maquoketa, Iowa, JUL 13 1904 190Dr. John MuirMartinez Cal.My Dear Sir:-I was very glad to receive your greeting a few days ago. I really think that I can recall the handwriting from the days of the old North Dormitory. I congratulate you on the world trip that you made - a gallant undertaking at your age. I believe that I would be unable to endure it. Your long absence makes me suspect that you did not see the Outlook for Nov. 28. 1903, and as I wrote the article which appeared in it mainly for your eye, I will enclose a clipped reprint from one of our local papers. With the letter which I wrote home describing your clocks I had enclosed a drawing of the scythe clock made by Will Fuller. I found the old letter and a pin in it which had held the drawing, but the card was gone - when and where I dont know. Was very sorry to have lost it as the Outlook people would have been glad to make an engraving of it no doubt.It is a little singular that in all these03404
