My dear Mr & Mrs Muir
Arbor Day passed off very successfully- delightfully interesting - the only disappointment being the absence of the one so dear to the hearts of all Californians and to whom the beautiful tree was dedicated- We received your telephone message this morning and appreciate very much your good wishes for the day's success - and felt you were
with us in spirit - some time when you come to Berkeley you must visit the High School grounds and see this tree and read the inscription on the plate. a paper giving an account of the exercises will be sent to you. Also a souvenir program. Hoping you will both soon recover from the prevailing colds - and thanking you for your kind letters.
Yours very sincerely
for Arbor Day Committee
