Philadelphia, Aug. 12 1902

John Muir, Esq.

My dear Mr. Muir,

I have just had returned to me a letter written to you many weeks ago informing you that, at the late election of officers, etc. of the American Alpine Club, you were elected one of its Directors. The letter, unfortunately, was wrongly addressed, & has been following me about.


[in margin: Am Alpine Club
Prof Heilprin]

Trusting that you will pardon this blunder on my part, and accept this as the official notification, I am,

with much respect,

Very truly yours,

Sergelo Heilprin
