which we think he greatly merits. Pleaes give him our very kindest regards and congratulations. I am "just dying" to see the picture you speak of tho' I do not think Mr. Muir that you and Mr. Keith ought to give us the picture as you have both done so much for us. Please remember me very kindly to Mrs. Muir your dear little girls and Mrs Strentzel.
Yours very truly
Fay H Sellers
My dear Mr Muir,
Having noticed in the Century Magazine the reproduction of my photograph of you, I was about to write you when your letter enclosing pamphlet came. I tell you frankly Mr Muir I feel highly complimented that my little picture should be used and think the reproduction very
good. Mr Sellers and I have not yet decided what we will do this winter, whether we will remain in Chicago for a change or take a short trip to California.
the Raymond Hotel at Pasadena was burned you know just after we left there and is not to be rebuilt this year, so Pasadena will not be as pleasant for us as when the large hotel was in existance.
I would like to see more of central California but Al tells me winter is not the most desirable time to visit that section. Just now Al is very busy adding a new feature to his business and thinks it will require much of his attention this winter. We are so glad to hear Mr Keith is making so much money and more delighted that he is winning fame
