April 6 1899

Mr. John Muir,

Martinez, Calif.

Dear Sir:

A number of California geologists met in Berkeley, in January, and formed a geological club, to be known as the "Cordilleran Geological Club", with Dr. [Leonte?] as president, and J.P. Smith as secretary.
It was decided to put your name among the charter members, if you have no objections. The next meeting will be held in San Francisco, in the council room of The California Academy of Sciences, Saturday April 29. 8pm. An informal dinner will be held at Jacques' restaurant S.F. Sacramento St., between Kearny & Montgomery Sts, at 6p.m.
We hope you will be able to meet with us, and take part in the business discussion,as to affiliation with The Academy.

Very respectfully,

Jas. Perrin Smith

Secretary C.G.S.



Stanford, Calif.
