My dear Mr. Muir,

At a meeting of the Alpha Chapter of Phi Beta Kappa in the state of California, held in California Hall yesterday afternoon, you


were elected an Honorary Member of the Society. It is our hope that you may do our Society the honor of accepting this election. We hope also that you will be our guest at our annual dinner on the evening of April 4. More exact notice of the time and place of the dinner will be sent to you later.
I remain, with sincere hopes that our

Society may have the privilege of counting you among its members,

Very sincerely yours,

George R. Noyes,
