Berkeley, Cal. April 12th 1902.
My dear Mr. Muir:
We have often spoken of you and of how greatly we all enjoyed your visit at our home. it was good of you to come and I hope that you will repeat the experiment some day. President Wheeler was deeply interested in your talk, as was every one, and you need have no fear that you said too much. It was like a breath of the mountains and did us all good. We are really coming to see you soon. On the third of May we leave for a few day's visit with some of the astronomers on Mount Hamilton, and possibly, if the time is suitable for you and
Mrs. Muir and you are not too busy, we might run up to Martinez for a day with you at the end of our observatory jaunt. That would be about the 8th of May. Berkeley is glorious just now and I know Martinez must be so likewise — singing birds and roses and blossoming trees! We all three send greetings to you and yours,
1902 Apr 12
