Martinez, Cal. Jan. 6, 1902

Dear Mr Kipp; I am delighted to hear from you & to learn that all the children, second & third growth are well & happy. I thank you for your invitation to visit you, I would be very glad to do so the very first chance I have, though in civilization I'm a bewildered tender foot & always sadly in need of a guide. Your letter brings back the good bright Alaska days with your family & the Osborns Hoping we may again see some of God's wildness together

I am every faithfully yours

John Muir
