Eells[1][letterhead]San Francisco, Sept 29 1904My dear Mr Muir:Concerning the next meeting of the Unitarian Club, about which I spoke to you several weeks ago, I am very happy to say that Mr Leavitt went to Santa Rosa on Tuesday, at my request, and saw Mr Luther Burbank with the result that, as he has just telephoned me, Mr Burbank, has accepted our invitation. I have also an acceptance from Mr Charles Keeler. Now, if I can get Mr Keith, my program will be as follow:-Nature in CaliforniaAs Moulded by Creative Intelligence-Mr MuirAs Modified by Human Intelligence-Mr BurbankAs the Artist Sees It Mr KeithAs it Appeals to the Poet.
