[John Muir]


Dear Johnie

Prof. Rising I met the other day, & he wants me to tell you that lately while in Washington D.C. he met Senator Bard who told him that, Pres Roosevelt had said to him (Bard) that hen he got out to California he was very anxious to make a camping trip with John Muir - I told Rising that I would write to you. I think Johnie [illegible] better go Mrs [illegible]ertz told


Mrs Keith that little Joe Le. C. was figuring on going with the President, as if he was the one to show him the Sierra - "Can he dance the Hieland [fling?] or can he [illegible]oe a bonnie lassie" Nay - Nay - while I am at the writing I may as well tell you that we are trying to get your bust in the Academy of Sciences, and need about $500- more $400 has been subscribed, & I think Mrs Muir could send a ch[illegible] for the $500 - without feeling it

As every yours

William Keith
