W[illiam] E. Ritter
Sept. 25, 1899.
My dear Mr. Muir,
I generally pay my honest debts sometime. Despite the questioning which you may have had as to whether or not you were six dollar out of pocket for your kindness to me, there really has never been any doubt in my mind [but?] that you would come out all right in the end.
What about the general [squash-up?] that has been going on about Yakutat? Does it not look as though you ought to be up there attending to your glaciers so that they may not all be spoiled?
Very sincerely yours,
Wm. E. Ritter
1899 Sep 25
