Martinez, California, Oct 8, 1899

My dear Miss Draper,

I was very glad to recieve the round [volume?] letter of your Big 4 written in Arizona on your way east. I wrote in reply a month ago to Mary & Cornelia thinking they would pass it on to you & Betty Averill But Betty writes me she has not seen it yet & I suppose you have not - through you must soon. Since I got home I have had quite a number of visits from members of the H.A.E. Captain Doran & his wife & niece. Henry Gannett, Prof Gilbert Charlie Keeler & tomorrow Dr Merriam is coming. So you may be sure the H.A.E. has been kept bright on this side the continent. I also had a nice trip to the Sequoias of the Sierra & the redwoods of the Coast Range with Dr. Merriam shortly after my return home & have heard by letter from John Burroughs & Prof [Ridgeway?]. Ask Mary H. for the answer to your compound letter.

With best wishes

Ever Cordially Yours

John Muir
