John Muir


Stanford University,
July 5, 1906.

Dear Mr. Muir:
When you were in Palo Alto you bad the kindness to say that my brother might stop and see you a bit on his way out to us. He leaves New York on the- 5th, and spends probably two days at the Canon. If you are at liberty for an hour he will be very glad, and also if you can tell him. how to get guidance to the Forest. But if you are busy, do say so. He is a very easy person, and would rather be told if you were engaged.
I presume you got the word I sent through Mr. Keeler, that there is nothing in paleaobotany here, but that there are plenty of persons at Stanford who would be glad to get a box of books sent to you from either Harvard College library or the Congressional, if you will say the word.

Very truly yours,



Stanford Univ. [Calif.]
