[2]has been spending the summer in Berkeley, returns next Tuesday, and is a friend of your friends Mr. & Mrs. Johnson. She does not see how she can go back without seeing "Mr. John Muir."! I want you to meet each other more than I can say; indeed, there is reward in going many miles to meet a woman so fine, so rare.It will give Mrs. Bettis as well as myself, great[3]pleasure to have you our guest for the night. A room will be waiting for you. I also hope to keep the Andersons that night. Do come, you need not open your mouth unless you wish, so you can never feel or say there is any put up job about this. Come over from the city just as you are & at what hour you please, but come before dark, as you are not particularly well versed in getting about this benighted
