PRIVATE OFFICEFRANK A. MILLERRiverside, Cal.Feb. 8, 1908.My dear Mr. Muir:Do you know of any lime rock formation in or near the Yosemite where we could establish a lime kiln that would turn out enough lime for the construction of the new hotel in the Valley? Also, do you know of a practical man in the Yosemite neighborhood who would be capable of undertaking this work?I regret very much that I was away on my European trip when you visited the Mission Inn and hope you will be south again soon. It would be a great pleasure to have you as my guest for at least two weeks.I want to show you the points of interest around Riverside the next time you come.Sincerely yours,[illegible]Mr. John Muir,Martinez, Calif.04060
