[William E.] Ritter


Martinez, Oct 20. 1899

My dear Prof Ritter

Come when you can, anytime & let us talk over our grand novel raid unto the fine fruitful northern wilderness. Keeler, Cap. Doran, Merriam Gannett & Gilbert have been here & now of course you must come. I have heard by letters from Burroughs Ridgeway & the Big Four girls. The east members of the party had a meeting & dinner on Dewy Day in N.Y. Let me know when you are coming & I'll meet you at the station.
With kind regards & happy recollections

I am very truly yours

John Muir
