My dear Mr Muir -

Wife & I wish you and yours a very merry Christmas & a happy New Year. We have just returned here to spend Christmas with Mr. Robinson & family and will probably remain till after New Years. Mr. R will then take us in his car and make a tour of [sunshine?] California. I hope to reach home about the middle of January to the 20th. I suppose you wrote to Mr Keith asking him to hold that

picture (view in Lake co) for me till I could reach home and see if it will go in the space I wish it. It will have a fine [lights?] there & show to advantage and I am sure that with that picture I can be of some assistance to Mr Keith in disposing of others. Would like you to write me whether he is willing to hold it for me. I shall take the picture if it will possibly go in the space intended. Wife & I look back with much pleasure to our pleasant visit to you & your delightful family. Please direct here in care of D. B. Robinson. With kind regards to you all

Yours very truly

A H Sellers
