[Mrs.]E. [Ruhamah] Scidmore
1411 K Street Washington Dec 27_ 1885
Dear Mr. Muir
I send you by mail [today?] a copy of my book and regret that it has not reached you before.
One of these [dam?] Democratic officials here casually asked me the other day if I "knew any- thing about Alaska." I shall be anxious to know what your opinion may be on that project.
With regards to Mrs. Muir, her mother and the little one. I am Very Sincerely L. [R.?] Scidmore
1885 Dec 27
