OFFICE OF THE PRESIDENT
My dear Mr. Muir:
Possibly away out in California you may have heard of the coming Jubilee of the University of Wisconsin. Ere this you should have received the official invitation to be one of the distinguished guests of the University at that time. We are very desirous that you shall be here as one of the men who has conferred distinction upon the University.
I am also authorized by the executive committee Of the alumni association to ask you to respond to a toast at the alumni banquet Monday evening, June 6th.
Sincerely hoping that you will plan to be here, and will respond at the alumni banquet, I remain,
Very sincerely. Yours,
Mr. John Muir,
1904 Mar 24
