Ludlow & Abby H. Patton
Oct. 21 1885 Room 874
Dear Mr Muir.
The Palton's are once again on the Pacific coast Do you wish to see them enough to call at this great wilderness of a hotel to see them? At Chico we called on General and Mrs. Bidwell who said you were married and living at Martinez on a ranch. I send this note at a venture, hoping for an answer soon, or to have a call from yourself and Mrs Muir. We may remain here a few weeks before going to southern California.
Your old friends and fellow travelers, Ludlow and Abby H. Patton
Palace Hotel, San Francisco, [Calif]
