[J. E.] Calkins


Martinez, Cal., Jan. 29/07.

Dear Mr. Calkins:-

Your coming to California to live is delightful. Come straight to my house for a good long visit. Perhaps you may be so pleased with our little Alhambra Valley you may decide to settle here and be my neighbor, but anyhow come straight to our house to rest and plan and look about you.

Ever faithfully yours,

John Muir



Martinez, Calif.
