[First draft of letter, in note-book]

Martinez, Jan. 28, '05.

Mrs. Marion Emerson Jamieson,
834 Mallard St.,
Los Angeles, Cal.

Dear Madam:

I am delighted to hear from you again. I have often wondered what had become of you. Like yourself, I look back with great pleasure to our meeting at the Grand Canyon, and will be very happy to visit your Fellowship on my first opportunity, but I am hard at work and it may be long before I will be able to go to Los Angeles, though I have many friends there. If you come up this way I hope you will remember your promise to call at our. house. Congratulating you on the good work you find to do,

Faithfully yours,

[John Muir]


[Martinez, Calif.]
