very much for the grapes and with best regards to Mr. Muir
I am with love

Mary [illegible] Keith


Berkeley, Oct 24th 1904

Dear Mrs. Muir,

We received this morning some grapes and Mr. Keith said What a difference between these and the store grapes. He eat a good many in bed; where he has been for two or three days, sick



with one of his colds. I think he needs a good long vacation. Perhaps we should have gone to Manila and Japan with Mr. B[illegible]ham, but "Willie" dreaded the long sea trip.
I have thought so long of making you a visit but I seem to have been tied up at home just as much as you are for the last two years. Is Wanda graduated yet? It seems a shame we have seen so little of her. I know she


must have been enjoying her college day -
My sister is in her own house now and my mother has gone back to hers, so Mr Keith and I are alone again and we have a couple of spare rooms, whenever you can come, any or all of you to stay over night. Dont put it off too long. We shall all be dead soon if you do-
Thanking you all


Berkeley [Calif.]
