Mr, John Muir,
My dear Mr. Muir:-
I must apologize for my tardy acknowledgment of your very courteous letter, but my plans were naturally rather upset by the destruction of San Francisco, and I was compelled to hurry home direct from Spokane.
It is a source of much regret to me that I was not in a position to accept your kind invitation, as I do not know of anything which I should have enjoyed more than admiring the wonders of Adamana in your company. I hope another year, if I am fortunate enough to be in California, that I shall have the pleasure of seeing you. Perhaps, however, something may call you to this part of the country before that time.
With kindest regards, I am
Very sincerely yours,
1906 May 4
