Dear Mr. Muir,

There is a young woman here, Mina Knapp, on the Call I believe, who wants so much to meet you and talk about birds & kindred things that I have asked her to go up with me some Sunday. Do you care, and may we come a week from Sunday, the 5th? Miss Knapp is


not one of my friends, and I do not bring her as I should like to bring Miss Thompson; still, the request has come to me. I scarcely know how to refuse. Besides I want to come myself before I turn home the last of May and bid you all goodbye.
I am feeling better these days, am learning to ride a bicycle! The exercise and fresh air are beneficial.
Please let me have a word at once and if it is not agreeable for us to come do not hesitate to say so. What is the hour of the morning train? We shall return in the afternoon.
Hoping you are all well, and with love to the family, I am

Sincerely yours,

Katharine M. Graydon
