My dear Mr. Reid:

I am very sorry that I missed seeing you yesterday. I received your card just as I was leaving the hotel for the train and as I can never find my way alone in these street canyons I could not leave the party. But I hope to see you next year. Give my Kindest regards to Mrs. Reid, and believe me,

Ever most cordially yours,

(Signed) JOHN MUIR
