SAN JOSE, CALIFORNIA, March 7, 1907.

Mr. John Muir,

Martinez, Cal.

My dear sir:-

I write to ascertain whether we can secure you to lecture for us at the University of the Pacific at some date within the next few weeks, and what would be your ter[illegible]s. It would be a very great pleasure to our Faculty & students to have you address them. March 29 (Friday), at 8 P.M., would be the most favorable date for us, but if you would prefer some other date we could probably arrange for such evening as would best please you. Perhaps you could name two or three dates, from which we could select. If you can come, what theme would you prefer to speak on?
Our university is located about a mile from San Jose.


We have a beautiful auditorium, of excellent acoustic properties, and while the number of our students is small as compared with the number at Stanford or Berkeley, we have an interesting, aspiring company of young people, who are eager to see & hear the best.
I trust you will come to us if you can reasonably make it possible to do so.
I mail you bulletins with views of our buildings. I should appreciate an early reply.

Sincerely yours,

M. S. Cross, Acting President,

755 Emory St.,

College Park, San Jose.
