My dear Mr, Muir:

I hope this is not serious for it is the final bit ofopposition which stands between the success and failure of the bill.
I wish you would come and see us at our home next Sunday afternoonabout 4 o'clock as Mr.and Mrs.Le Conte and some of our Outing friends willbe there and we will have a good chance to talk over Sierra Club affairs.

Very sincerely,



Berkeley, Calif.
