John Muir




Sept. 10 1913

My dear Muir:

I know that you will be pleased to know that the Board of Education Pasadena City schools have seen fit to call the building which was our Old high school (which is the finest building by far, in Pasadena of any of our 20 school houses, with the exception of our new High School Plant costing $600.000.00) The John Muir School.?
I want to say also that 40000 other people are honored and proud of this opportunity to show our love for the




name of John Muir and now shall be most pleased to show you about your Monument when down this way which I hope will be soon.
I am not authorized to break this word to you but taking my own liberty to mention it. The board will probably do so in a more formal manner later.
I have promised to place a complete set of John Muirs works suitably bound in the building I am anxious to have you autograph





them when down.
I trust you are well & that you will yet suceed in keeping Hetch Hetchy from the vandals.
Mrs. Sellers is still in much sorrow & cannot seem to get away from the loss of our beloved Colonel.
Come and see us.

Sincerely yours

A.C. Vroman

I enclose Bill as requested runs back to 1911.
