Cornelius B. Bradley
Berkeley, Oct, 17, 1902.
Dear Mr. Muir,
Thanks most sincerely for the sweet proof which came yesterday of your continued remembrance of us. The grapes came in excellent condition, and were fit to have been the grapes of Es[illegible] - only I am sure those never could have had the flavor of these. But chief of all the elements in their bouquet is the flavor of friendship;- and that is daily becoming to me more and more the most precious thing in the world. I have been reading your book aloud to my folks, and to
their great delight. Especially pleased and interested was my cousin (who has recently left us) - who had just taken a trip in the Yellowstone Park, and who could verify what you wrote. Mrs. Bradley joins me in love and thanks to Mrs. Muir and yourself.
Very sincerely yours,
Cornelius B. Bradley.
