[letterhead]Indianapolis, April 10, 1912.Dear Mr. Muir,I was in New York all last week being busy on law business nearly all of the time. I saw in the papers on Tuesday morning that you were on for Mr. Burroughs's birthday: and I wanted much to see you especially as I had had to leave home at a time when my mother was suffering much pain with a rheumatic attack. Her physician had told me that it was entirely safe to leave her; and as she had read with great interest your letters and papers in the magazines during the last year, I knew she would enjoy hearing of you from me.Saturday morning, I had not heard anything from you through I had written her that I was expecting to her from you at any moment.05170
