My Dear Mr. Muir:
I wish you a very merry Xmas, altho this is a day later, and a most happy New Year. Mr. Parsons just told me you were not well and I am so very sorry. This picture is the one taken at the Big Arroya when Miss Colby herded some butterflies around to me.
Sincerely your admirer and true friend
Ed B Gould
