Mrs Averell & I will devote our time & attention to you & While the boys are off Camping you would greatly enliven us. Your last appeal to Prof Osborn came a little while before we left home & we all (Mr & Mrs Osborn & I) wrote appealing missives to the President himself
Aug 7th 
Dear Mr Muir-
We are so near you - can you not be tempted to come to us if only for a week? This place would inspire even you who knows nature in all her greatest beauty so well but this spot has a charm of its own -
in behalf of Hetch Hetchy - People in the East are well aroused & I do not believe the danger is very near so go on with your [endeavors] & you may yet win out. Come see use & we can conspire together. Take the train to Salt Lake City or rather Odgen & they (the R. R. people) will put you on the particular Oregon short line branch road that will bring you to our ranch [illegible]ch Where a welcome & a peaceful ranch life awaits you -
