Dr. John Muir,

Pres. Sierra Club.

My dear Dr. Muir,-

At the dedication of Muir Lodge the Sierra Club Lodge in Santa Anita Canon [diacritic] last Saturday and Sunday, you were very much missed, indeed.
Enclosed you will find some pictures which were taken by my kodak which I trust you will enjoy. I send them with my compliments.
Enclosed is also a copy of Bailey Millard's poem which I was privileged to read as a conclusion to the Dedication Exercises on Saturday night. I am enclosing it with the request that you will place thereon your autograph that I may have the same to give to my ten-year old daughter Kathryn who was present at the exercise and who has learned to enjoy and participate in the work and play of the Sierra Club to the extent of her youthful ability. I enclose a stamped and addressed envelope for the re-enclosure.
We all are hoping that in the not far distant future you may be with us at Muir Lodge and thus re-dedicate it.

Most respectfully yours,

Everett Shepardson
