R. B. Marshall
U. S. Geological Survey,Washington, D. C.,April 19, 1912.My dear Mr, Muir:The Marshalls welcome home their dearest of friends!Our friend McFarland of the AmericanCivic Association tells me that he had an hour of real pleasure with you in New Yorkon the fifth of March, and this is the nineteenth of April and we have not had even that promised note or wire saying you are coming,and when, to make us that long delayed visit. It is not fair--not like our John Muir--to stay in the largest city when "country" Washington has a small corner begging for you. Come-come. Mrs. Marshall and the babies want to hear all about your ramblingsnow--certainly before you start for God'scountry.By the way, I had the courage a fewdays ago to send a few simple words andsome pictures of our national parks to ourfriend Robert Underwood Johnson. I want togo on record--to express some of my feelings05177[in margin: Marshall D.C.]
