Martinez, June 23, 1895

My dear Prof Anderson

I hope your wheeling was all happy. I have just read your [review?] & criticising of the Century names. hope it will do good. This job must have cost you much hard work. It is admirably done--fair scholarly. I happen to know something about this work of names

& I know that your judgment of it is wise & true all through. Thanks for your kind notice of your devoted and admiring friend

John Muir.

We all greatly enjoyed your & Prof [Grim's?] visit & hope you will do the same fine thing again.
