Mrs. [William] Keith
Channing Way, Berkeley,
November 23, .
My dear Mrs. Keith:
When I told Mr. Biedenbach I asked you to write Mr. Keith he was delighted and asked me to see you and say that the success of the day depends on Mr. Muir coming to dedicate the tree, and will you please write him to this effect, and we want also to have you and Mr. Keith with us. Will send you tickets to "grand stand" as soon as we receive them from the printer's. I called at your house yesterday morning, but you had gone to Oakland.
We appreciate very much your writing this letter for us to Mr. Muir. With love, and best wishes for a favorable reply,
Yours very cordially,
[Letter marked, in Muir's handwriting, "Katherine Freeman on planting Sequoia Berkeley High School"].06202
