John Muir



I hope you will find time this autumn or winter to pay a visit to my brothers at St. Helena.
My mother has been greatly the better of her trip to the West.
We both of us send you & your folks our best regards.

Yours truly

I Rennie

My Dear Muir.

By this post I send you 2 photos of Dunbar, (the fishing quarter) which I took some years ago when on a photoing tour round the East coast. One of our home here, one of myself, & four of my taking ofour Scots hills.
Names on backs.


Two Sundays ago I spent the weekend with Willie Douglas in Edinburgh. We loafed round the "auld house" & went up Arthur's Seat. He had just returned from a month's climbing in Switzerland. He had been up the Matterhorn, Rothorn, etc. & some other breakneck places.
