John Muir


[John Muir]


Thomas Magee, Jr.



[First draft of letter, in note-book]

[March 13, 1905].

Dear Mr. Magee:

I thank you very much for your kind letter of invitation to the Dr. Van Dyke dinner. But though I am of course anxious to accept, I am by no means sure that I can. I am trying to finish a piece of work that will not wait. It would have been off my hands before this, had my time not bean so miserably broken up by the Yosemite recession bill.

With best wishes, I am,

Faithfully yours,
[John Muir]

Mr. Thomas Magee, Jr.,
University Club, S.F.
