My Dear Mr Muir

I have just received your precious letter, you can not know what a relief to know you are all as well as you are. I was all ready to go to you if needed, I have been receiving telegrams and telephones from many people, who having seen the false reports, were very anxious to here from you, we are delighted to know you are coming, and trust you will be able to stay a long time, and I am sure I can make you comfortable at my home in Pasadena or Henninger Flats, where you may rest quietly, I hope I may


know a five days ahead, when you will arrive
With greatful hearts for your well being, I am for all, and to all

Most Sincerely Yours,

T. P. Lukens
