John Muir, Esq.,

Martinez, Cal.

My dear Mr. Muir:--

Mr. Keith has sent me your letter of Sept. 23d, in which you suggest a trip to Arizona, which will include the petrified forest and Taxadium Grove. I should be very much pleased to make this trip with you and Mr. Keith. My two daughters insist upon going, but I am not familiar enough with the sort of trip we will have to know whether they could very well join us. Please let me have particulars--that is, I would like to know what points on the railroad we must go to, and how far we will travel by other conveyance than railroad. I think I can manage to make this trip with you and Mr. Keith some time in November.
With kindest regards, I am

Very truly yours,

Wm F Herrin03955
