Dear Sir,

I enclose an introduction I got from Mr. Wm. Douglas of Edinburgh, Scotland to you. I have been a week in the State, right out from Scotland. I hope to stay here with my brothers till end of May.
Before then I should like to call & make your acquaintance.
Kindly let me know if you live for from the railway station & if the road can be ridden over


on a safety bicycle. I could take the train to Vallejo, ferry over, & ride the rest of the way.
If you will let me know about what time would suit you I would send you notice a day or so before my coming.

Yours truly

[J.?] Rennie

Dear Mr Muir

Allow me to introduce to you a very good friend of mine--Mr Rennie--who tells me he will be in your neighbourhood sometime this spring.
He is a keen mountaineer and you and he will doubtless have lots in common.
With very kind regards & hoping to see you again soon in Auld Reekie

I am

Yours sincerely

William Douglas


St. Helena [Calif.]
