John Muir


Jany. 15, [1873].

John Muir, Esq.,

I enclose you this letter, persuaded you will like to see how Henry is getting on.
His report from the head of the school is at hand. The highest average of anyone in his class of 57 is 94. Henry's average is 92.
My wife is better. I go home tonight.

J. D. Butler.

[A letter from Henry Butler is filed with the original copy of the above, together with two later letters of Henry Butler to his father which had evidently been forwarded to Muir. Copies of these letters have not been made on typewriter]
