SARATOGA, CALIFORNIA, March 10, 1905

Mr. John Muir,

Martinez, California.

Dear Mr. Muir:-

I take pleasure in extending to you an invitation to be one of the guests of honor of oun people on the occasion of the Blossom Festival, the 18th inst., and add to and enjoy the inspiration and pleasure which we hope the day will afford. I might add that there are several streams and gulches in that immediate vicinity which are very much in need of being inspected by you, while the whole region has acquired a new importance in view of the state road bill which is now in the hands of our good Governor, and which I sincerely hope he will sign, if he has not already done so.
I sincerely trust that you will recognize your duty as State Mountain and Gulch Inspector, and find it convenient and enjoyable to bring your family and as many of your friends as possible to Saratoga on the day above indicated.

Sincerely yours,

ft J [illegible]

Secretary.
