My dear Muir,

I enclose a New York draft for $25- in liquidation of the amount you so kindly loaned me. Many thanks. I also send, in a separate envelope, the necktie which you insisted that, in decency, I should wear. I assume that the Kern River trip is now a thing of the past. For me it was a trip of a lifetime. In every respect it was 10 delightful!! The country and the company could not be improved, and I shall hold the delightfully memory of that month as long as I live. I am here [illegible]ebling with the sheep



sheep question, in connection with some proposed new forest reserves. It is curious how plansible some people can be. Now your sheep man, according to his own account, is the greatest friend to the forest. I shall be in this neighborhood for a fortnight, at least. My kindest regards to Mrs Muir and the girls, and to all members of the K. R. P. you may meet -

Sincerely yours

Henry Gannett

Miss Delany has a superb picture of the "Twins". I told her to send you a print.
