John Muir



May 1, 1902.

Dear Mr. Muir:

Mrs. Millard and I thank you heartily for your botanical information and for the photographs. To us, always interested in such matters, they were very pleasing and valuable. It will be a long time before we forget your visit to our canon [diacritic]. Let it not be the last. Remember that Muir day is any and all days with us. You saw the ceanothus blooms at their best. Satisfied with your inspection and honored by it, they are now passing gradually away. With regards to Mrs. Muir and the young ladies. I am sincerely yours
