[letterhead]Mch 4, 1908My dear Muir.The enclosed letter I received Monday. I hardily liked the tone of it, tho' Vroman did not seem to place the same force [to?] the objectionable sentence that I did. I wrote Calkins and quoting the sentence marked on first page of his letter (read it), I said I did not underdstand that any arrangement was made at my house, but only a talk to determine whether an arrangement along certain lines could be made, and that you were to take the matter under consideration, & determine later, after you had been home, and seen how things were up there.I told Vroman that I thought Mr Calkins might be all right & [desirable?] to aid you, but that I was fearfull of installing Mrs Calkins in your home, without fuller acquaintance with her & her manner & ability. That I thought it would be advisable that you, instead of taking them into your home, should come down here, go to their home in Los Angeles, and live a month with them. Mr Vroman fully agrees with me in this.04081
