[Original in possession of Rev, John G. Taylor, Arlington, Mass.]

Martinez, Cal., June 7, 1913.

Dear Mr. Taylor:

Many thanks for your kind letter full of Auld lang syne University days, with their fondly cherished memories. Can you give me Charlie Vroman's address? I have not seen him since I left Madison. I don't remember Bicknell, but I must hunt him up next time I go to Los Angeles. Rice and Blake were my companions on a botanical excursion to Prairie du Chien when I left the University. Blake is a physician in Brooklyn, N.Y,
I met Bradford Torrey years ago in Boston, and in Yosemite Valley a few months before his death. I have his last book. He was a fine character beloved by all who really knew [him].
I'm glad to learn that you have lived so fine and useful a life, and I shall look forward to meeting you before sundown.

Faithfully yours,

John Muir.
