(Apr 1913)



My dear Mr. Muir:-

How can I thank you fr your generous gift & sweet thoughtfulness? I have just received thro' Vronman your book telling of your boyhood days. I shall enjoy reading every word of it, & am proud to be the possessor



of it through your kindness. Some day when you are in this neighborhood, & will come again to see us, you will perhaps be good enough to write your name in it for me.
yesterday was my birthday, so it came as sort of a birthday gift. Thank you, dear Mr. Muir, very


very much.

Mr. Charles Kellogg is in Los Angeles this week charming big audiences with his bird songs, & is to come, with his wife, to spend a couple of days with us next week.
Do let us know when you come to this part of Cal.
