Mr. John Muir,-
My dear Mr. Muir,
It is the earnest desire of the directors of The Outlook Club of Mountclair, to have you address the club at some time during the coming winter. The choice of a fourth Friday evening of each month from Oct. to May (December and March excepted) is open
[in margin: Dr. Elizabeth Mercelis
17 Plymouth St.
to you. Such is our eagerness to hear Mr. John Muir, that we hope you are planning a trip to this part of the country, that our chance may be the greater.
Whatever honorarium may be satisfactory to you the club, I feel certain, would extend, although the usual one is one hundred dollars.
With much eagerness do I await your reply to our invitation.
