Poodle-dog restaurant where I managed to assemble about eighty of our club members a merry lot in fine array. The long flowery table flanked by the mountaineers looked something like a Sierra Canyon and so the merry witty feasters called it the 'Muir Gorge' At a quarter past eight o'clock we marched to the meeting & with a fine triumphant alpenglow on every face overwhelmed the poor Hetchy dammers.Next morning the Call reported that Muir the naturalist had packed the meeting, though I had only packed seventy seven stomachs.I'm pegging away trying to write & hoping that like Marian you have got rid of your coldI am ever fondly faithfully yoursJohn Muir
