John Muir


some convenient time.We shall feel ourselves greatly honored if you can make us a visit sometime during this fall or winter, not, however, earlier than the 20th of October.I leave for England on a two-months vacation shortly, expecting to return about the 20th of October, and I should not want to be away from home at the time of your visit.
With high esteem, I remain,

Very respectfully yours,

Reno, Nevada,
August 16, 1901.

Mr.John Muir,

Martinez, California.

My dear Sir:

our Professor Anna Martin returned from her trip through the Yosemite Valley bubbling over with enthusiasm.She mentioned among the most pleasing incidents of her trip the meeting with you. Professor Martin says that you will perhaps kindly waive your usual rule with regard to speaking to University students so far as to accept an invitation to visit the University of Nevada at



Reno, Nev.
