Friend Muir

Wife and I were real glad to get your letter of the 30[uth?] and I assure you that it called up many pleasant recollections with which you were closely associated and in fact formed the [illegible] of [illegible]. In all our long trips of six months duration, I am sure we enjoyed our ride through the Yellowstone with you more than anyothers. Your article inclosed, is an [excelant?]


and p[illegible] description of the wonders of the Park and we hope you will not fail to rend us or call our attention to any other articles you may publish for we will read them with double interest. Frank is back at school [illegible] at [illegible] His address is 28 Weld Hall Harvard Cambridge Mass, in case you wish to write him. He will spend the Christmas Holidays with us_

I am so sorry that you could not have spent more time with

us here, as I have [yet?] many persons who would have liked to have met you, and whom you would have enjoyed. I hope the day may not be long distant when you can spend some time with us.

If we should go to Mt. Ranier (Tacoma) next summer I hope you can go with us for I knew you would greatly enjoy that beautiful mountain and your company would add greatly to our pleasure. Wife joins me in kind regards to you and yours.
