548 Madison St Milwaukee Wis Aug 17th 1896Mrs John MuirDear MadamI take the liberty of addressing this letter to you, in order to obtain your account P.O. adress. I promised Mr Muir a large family photo, but neglected to get his addresss: often though of it, but hated to interrupt the precious conversation by asking. I considered that I had it in some old letters, but these if I now have them, seem hard to find. So I am presuming on the good nature of the P.O men, to find you, without your direct address; which then you will kindly furnish me.I presume Mr Muir is now engaged with that forestry commission he told me about when here: roaming the mountains, along the northern part of your coast, enjoying his earthly heaven, I could enjoy it with him, and enjoy his narration of these things immensely. My neccessities however lead me in a different line, but fortunately one that accords with my nature.In communicating to Mr Muir, please give him my kindest regards.Respectfully yoursW. H. Trout02143
