[Melville Best] Anderson


Martinez, Sep. 21, 1902

My dear Professor Anderson:

We are all delighted about your visit to us next Sunday. It will be more changeful & do you more good than a visit from me I expect to be in San Francisco next Saturday at a Sierra Club directors meeting, & if you could conveniently meet me at Keith's studio, next door to Goldberg Bo[illegible]s store on Pine St. near Kearney about 2 o'clock you would see some fine pictures & you could go home with me on the Santa Fe train that leaves the city at 4.20. Thus you would have a longer visit & have nothing to do but rest & smile while I chipped & chattered like a sparrow for your amusement. But if not convenient stick to the original plan & I'll meet you at Muir Station, Santa Fe road, Sunday morning But take notice that the train which formerly left the city at 9. A.M. now leaves at 8 A.M.
