219 Grand Ave.Waukesha, WisSept. 30, 1896My dear Freind Mr. Muir.Your most kind letter of July was received and I was glad to hear from you but regret you did not receive my leter inviting you to visit us when you were in Wis. You have my sympathies on the loss of your mother. I have lost both my father and mother and I realize the loss so much. I have remained single being the youngest one in the family and having kind of a charge, my last sister who was with me died five years ago. I congratulate you on your honorary degree at Harvard and I think with you that this University ought to have been the first to confer that honor and it would have been an honor ot the University.02159
