3into these old days this letter will spread far & wide like a Wisconsin prairie.When you come to California come direct to my house & bring Charlie Jay with you. "Muir station" on the Santa Fe railroad is on the side of our ranch & within an hour & a half of San Francisco. There are 2 morning & 2 evening trains to & from the city, so you can go & come to & from the meetings in the city, you refer to in your letter, every day. The first train from our station reaches San Francisco about 8. 30, A.M. - time enough for any sort of meeting - Let me know as soon as you decide the time of your visit so that I will be sure to be at home.With kindest regards to Charlie & all your family I am ever faithfully yours John Muir[in margin: I send herewith some old clippings I discovered lately which may amuse you or the children]
