and also yours on the first floor, first door to the right of the north entrance. But I will not attempt the trip until pleasant weather comes in the spring. I wish that I could meet you there, and Fuller, Goldsworthy, Mathewson, Holt, Charles Vilas and others of the "old boys." I understand that Tutor J.B. Parkinson is still connected with the University and that he is now Vice President. I hope so, and that I shall be able to see him.I am not forming plans with any great confidence however. I have a veiled warning from my medical advisor that I need not expect to be a very old man. I feel in a hurry to get some more of my work done. Am looking forward with considerable hope that I may spend next winter in California. If so I trust that I may have the good fortune of a visit with you,Very Sincerely YoursHarvey ReidMr. John MuirMartinez Cal.
