flower show to get funds for our poor and some of his wonderful plants would be a great attraction. I expect to have the show at the end of April and the principal flowers will be Daffodils and Primroses in all their varieties. This year I am collecting for this purpose. One year I made $300 in a small attempt I made at a village, so I hope here I can get $1000. We have much poverty this year amongst the unemployed. Farming does not pay in England and manufacturing is overdone and we cannot compete with your adopted (for you are a Scotchman) country.Please remember us kindly to your daughters. My regards to Mrs. Muir and with many many good friendly wishes to yourself.Sincerely YoursE. Furse[in margin: 378]Mar. 21, 1905Dear Prof. MuirYour letter of Feb. 15th was a real treat. I am very glad that you have not forgotten me. How I should like to make you a visit! When I can go to California again I cannot tell. I know I have to go to the eastern states towards the end of the summer but only for a few days. I must return before one of my sons goes to India. Then I expect to go to Egypt where my youngest son is going. He has suddenly given up 03351
