John Muir


Thursday, 21 Nov.

Dear Mr. Muir:

Flugel [diacritic] and I will come (D. S.) next Saturday morning on the Los Angeles Express, reaching Martinez at 10.24 according to the time-table. I shall be at Benicia the night before & suppose I can make the connection with the train in question. Flugel [diacritic] has been reading your book. American literature is one of his interests. He is very full of eager anticipation of [illegible] visit. You will find him thoroughly alive, and as familiar with the stratification of books as you are with the black letter of the rocks. If you are


interested in any glen or crevasse of the middle ages You will find him an Agassiz on the subject. With cordial regards to dear Mrs Muir

Yours faithfully,

Melville B. Anderson
