Melville B. Anderson
Menlo Park, 4 May, 1903
My dear Mr. Muir:
The invitation is most kind and highly appreciated by all of us. [illegible]hn is again in Alaska, but Robert is wild to go of course and perhaps it may be managed,- although several of his college examinations fall in the week following May 16.
I have with me now one of the best men I know, Francis F. Browne, Editor of The Dial, who comes loaded with introductions superfluous, I venture to think to you from C. F. Lummis. Browne is a man you
would particularly like : a gentleman in the best sense.
May we come to see you next Friday? Can you give us that day without in convenience? If not, please tell me so with friendly frankness. By that time I can tell you and Helen definitely what Robert can do with respect to the trip.
I thank you both for my part in the invitation,- but I am afraid I should be an encumbrance to the young people. With cordial regards to all, especially to Mrs. Muir, I am
Melville B. Anderson
