John Muir,

My dear friend of olden times I heard yesterday that you had recently inquired as to my address, and I am hoping you are thinking of making a call. Many times I have thot of writing you, wishing you would drop in upon us on some of your trips to the city, and shall still hope to see you. Telegraph cars, or Grove street line will bring you to our street. and I


would like much to see you. Dr. Wilson is in poor health, but up and around the house- and I think you will find that the years have changed your old friend, of Prairie du chien times much. Come and see us.

Sincerely yours

Emily O Wilson
