My Dear Mr. Muir:

Your Christmas present and "reminder of your visit" has at last arrived and been duly christened. It is in the form of a silver coffee pot to complete the silver service that Sierra Club friends gave us when we were married. The coffee pot from the club's President continues the association most happily and we are very proud to have it.
Thanking you again for the


remembrance and hoping that we may pour your morning's coffee from it very soon.

Faithfully yours the "Ever young elderly children of Miss Hill-
