[Katharine Merrill] Graydon


Martinez, March 25, 1895

My dear Miss Graydon,

Tell Professor & Mrs Anderson that we deeply sympathize with them in their terrible loss--but in the presence of death all speech seems out of place. God grant them light & strength in their bereavement the boy will not come back to them but they will go to him in the better land.
Come when you can

Ever your friend

John Muir
