Mr. John Muir,
The Wisconsin State Historical Museum would like very much to secure a good photograph of yourself. We also would be pleased to have some mementos of your days here in Wisconsin. Possibly you have some models of early inventions or books or other articles used in your school days which you may be willing to donate or loan to the Museum. All such material will be greatly appreciated.
P. S. The Museum was asked this morning, just after the writing of the above, whether there was any material belonging to you or photograph of you in its possession. Wisconsin certainly ought to have some memento of you.
