My dear Mr. Muir,
We are trying to form a society in Berkeley for the protection of birds, with the hope of affecting legislation next Spring. I know you are interested in securing life and liberty to all wild things, and promoting friendly relations between
them and mankind. So I send you an invitation with the hope that if you cannot be present at the first meeting, next Saturday evening, you will send us a few words of encouragement and advice.
I have wanted to make your acquaintance, ever since Wanda was a member of my family, as I took a great interest in her, and hope "
That I may do so, as I have come home to stay.
With kind regards to Mrs. Muir, believe me,
