Dear Mr. Muir:-This letter was in my mind to write many days ago. I intended that it should greet you on your return with a message of my deep love for you and the joy of your reaching home again safe and sound.We are all expecting to hear the most exciting and interesting details of this wild excursion of yours.You do not know how loathe we were to let you go on this trip alone but then we who know you well forget that the world is yours and not the limited zone we call home.You are coming hack soon and you will be greeted with cheers and rejoicing.Affectionately yours,[illegible]
