My dear Mr. Muir-
We have named our Sierra Club Lodge "Muir Lodge" after receiving the oonsent in your late letter.
Your photo will have the most prominent place on the Lodge walls. Accept our thanks.
I note that you are not sure that you can attend our dedication on OCT. 4-5. We wish to make this invitation especially urgent, Mr. Muir. We believe that you will enjoy it-we may have two hundred present interested in the mountains. We shall provide you a good sure-footed animal and a two-hour's ride will take you to the site, and in the late afternoon the temperature will be comfortable. The trolley ride of one hour is always a delightful one. We will furnish a good spring bed for the night and anything else that you may desire. Your presence would be a definite asset in the work of the Sierra Club, So. Section, Mr. Muir, and we are looking forward to the especial privilege of your company. We know that you are entitled to a vacation trip down here. We are sending out return postals on the 24th of this month. May we not state that John Muir has accepted our request to be present at the dedication of Muir Lodge? Many of our members join me in this request of the Building Committee.
With kindest regards,
1913 Sep 17
