Nov. 1st. 1889.

My dear Mr. Muir:

Mr. Keith has spoken to you of our club and of our great desire to have you give us a talk upon Alaska, or any subject that you may prefer. We all know and remember your "Wind Storm in the High Sierras," "The little Douglas Squirrel." etc., etc. aside from your scientific articles of the wonderful stories of the glaciers of this coast.
I remember our delight at listening to you at Mr. McChesney's, again at Sisson's. My heart is just set upon having the ladies of our Club have the same pleasure and profit. I have to secure someone for the first Wed. P.M. of every month. I want you to do me and our Club the great favor of addressing us the 1st Wed. of Dec., if that time is convenient to you. Mr. Keith, I am sure, will be equally kind and talk to us upon Art the 1st Wed. in Jan. He says you "must speak first." Please excuse informality and answer me as I feel sure your kindness and interest in the subject will prompt you to do.

Most sincerely yours,

Helen C. Huse
