John Muir Esq

Martinez Cal

Dear Sir

I have just received a letter from my brother Marcius C Smith in which he tells me you are living in Martinez and I would be glad to see you when you are down at Frisco and I suppose you remember me as I am the next oldest one of the Smith boys "Charlie" and I am the head book keeper for this large concern and have been here over 10 years and I should be very glad to see you at any time and show you this establishment and go over old times with you. [Braimond?] our oldest brother whom you will remember as the cripple is Clerk at the State Prison at Folsom which posistion he has had for many years and would be glad to see you if you are [illegible] that way and I am

Yours truly

Chas. R. Smith
