Mr. John Muir

Martinez, Cal.

My dear Friend:

"The Craftsman" which you so kindly sent us was duly received and we thank you for the pleasure its perusal has given us.
The newspaper people didn't learn of your visit to Stockton until some three days after you were here. Then they came down on me with a rush to learn particulars. I enjoyed poking fun at them about their lack of enterprise as witnessed by the fact that a man of your size could spend a day here without their being the wiser for it until it was too old for a news item. However they made one of it.
Attorney McNoble was very much disappointed


not to see you, as were the R[illegible] and we all hope that you will find occasion to repeat the visit and make it longer, soon.
Kindly remember me to Mrs. Muir and both Mrs. Hughes and myself to Miss Helen; we hope she will find in the contemplated trip to Arizona just what she needs to complete the recovery she has so well begun.

Very sincerely yours,

Edward Hughes



Stockton, Calif.
