Los Angeles Cal.,Sixth GradeHoover St. Sch.May. 23, 1910.Dear Mr. Muir:At school when we have spare time our teacher reads to us. We have just finished your book "Stickeen", we all enjoyed it so much.I think he was a pretty brave dog to go over that big crevass. I am writing to you because I would like to know why you did not bring him to California with you.Since he became so attached to you and you to him I think his master would been glad to give him to you. I was sorry that he was stolen. If you had of taken him he would not have been stolen.If you are not to busy will you kindly answer. I remain yourfaithful readerViolet Phillips.04767 (6)
