John Muir, Esq.,
Martinez. Cal.

Dear Brother:

I sent you a deed of trust on the house about 30 days since, and have heard nothing from it since. I have been carrying the $2000 at the bank and would be pleased to have the deed of trust as quickly as possible. I had it made to me. so that by my signing the notes and transferring from me, that I could get a less rate of interest.
Your immediate attention to this will oblige me.


Walter Brown.

I have only money enough on hand to pay for the Quit Claim and interest account, as I have not sold only a part of the notes, and have not yet got the Quit Claim, I expect to soon, however, J[oanna] is going to hear Emma Abott this evening, her first attempt at opera.
