[in margin: 101]
Jan. 6, 1905
Dear Mr. Muir,
What next? Port Arthur has fallen, a sixth satellite of Jupiter has been discovered, and now one especially severe earthquake of a series has shaken a five dollar gold piece off of an apricot tree in Alhambra Valley into my lap as I sit at my desk in Oakland - and all since January 1, 1905!
May the year which as been ushered in this spectacularly prove rich in blessings - health to all of you, and peace to you for the pursuit of your literary labors.
With many thanks for the welcome new year's gift, I am
As ever your friend,
January 6, 1905.
1905 Jan 6
