Mary E. B. Norton
306 South Second St. San Jose. Sept. 14./85.
Dear Mr. Muir:
The enclosed circular will explain to you the character of the memorial volume about to be issued.
We desire to include my brothers antograph with his portrait, and while we have his autograph in many family letters, the clsing [illegible] address is less suitable for publication than that which he would use in writing other friends.
If you chance to have preserved any of his letters and would kindly send me the
autographs, I should deem it a great favor.
With kindest remembran- ces to Mrs Muir,
I remain with high esteem.
Very Truly Yours. Mary E. B. Norton.
…San Jose, [Calif]
1885 Sep 14
