John Muir



My dear Mr. Muir,

We are delighted that you are coming to Inverness. May we expect you this Thursday for two or three days, or if that is not convenient, please arrange the time most convenient for you.


Take the Sausalito ferry from San Francisco at 5.15 P.M. and at Sausalito the train for Point Reyes. From there we have a pretty four mile drive to Inverness. The stage meets the train at Point Reyes.
Mrs. Marshall joins me in a warm welcome for you.

Very cordially,

Evelyn C. Simmons.




Inverness [Calif.]
