[Original in possession of Mr. A. B. Brown, Alexandria, S. Dak.]Martinez, April 22, 1908.Dear Bradley Brown:I'll be delighted to see [you] coming so far out of the Auld lang syne. When you are in San Francisco, get a ticket to Muir at the office of the Santa Fe' Railway at the Ferry Building, foot of Market St[reet]. One train leaves the city about 8.30 or 9 in the forenoon and one at 4 P.M. Muir station is on the side of our ranch about a l/3d of a mile from the house and distant from the city about l-l/2 hours. Let me know as soon as possible the day you will be here and the train you will come on so that I will be on hand to meet you. There is nothing now in sight to call me from home within the next two weeks, but write as soon as you can.Yesterday I was three score and ten years young. I don't feel a bit older to-day than I did when I first made your acquaintance at the Log Schoolhouse drawing wisdom from George Branch.Hoping to find you equally young and happy, I am ever,Yours faithfully,John Muir.04154
