My dear Muir:

Please accept my sincere thanks for your very kind remembrance. I shall read the book as I read everything of yours with the pleasure one gets from the "real thing" in literature or science. I have long meant to visit you at Martinez - long meant to insist on your visiting me

Cordially yours,

David S. Jordan
