My Dear Mr Muir

Enclosed please find particulars which I feel sure will interest you, because it embodies your creed in its simplicity and earnest purpose as I remember the long, long trek at the "Canyons" in Jan' of '02, I shall always look back upon that time as


one of the most beautiful experiences of my life -
When you come to Los Angeles again do please visit our "Fellowship" and so give me the pleasure of meeting you again. Mr. Mills will always be able to tell you where I am. He is the only one I ever heard preach who voiced my own thought evolved from life experience. I am glad to be in Cal if for no other reason than that, I believe in his principles of living, the Golden Rule & the Sermon on the Mount embody all one needs in this world, for right-living. I was very sorry that your friend Mrs Adams of Redlands whose address you gave me to call upon, died before I could meet her, I called but she was ill & did not see her.
With kindest Regards to your family and yourself.

Very sincerely yours

Marion Emerson Jamieson
