Oct. 20, 1913.
Dr. Jno. Muir,
My dear Dr. Muir,
How generously you have responded to my request for your autograph! There is so much that is "human" in your Stickeen that it makes the receipt of your autograph copy all the more appreciated. When my daughter Kathryn shall have read it, you will doubtless receive a letter from a 10 1/2 yr. old admirer.
We shall indeed look forward with pleasure to the time when you can be with us at Muir Lodge. We are certain that you will be charmed with the Lodge itself and its setting. Of course we may not have the high altitude with its accompaniments, but it is a delight to us and we hope that many friends will enjoy it with us.
Again thanking you for your generousity,
I am sincerely yours,
1913 Oct 20
