Mr. John Muir,Martinez,Cal

My dear Mr.Muir:-

Enclosed herewith is a little faded flower plucked From the bridal bouquet of Miss Emma Blanchard,now Mrs. Allen; which she asked me to send you with her love and kind remembrances.
I attended the wedding last night which took place in the Episcopal Church in San Jose.There were a number of the Sierra Club members present,and all were charmed with the simplicity and sweetness of the marriage ceremony.Miss Blanchard made a charming bride and Glenn Allen acted his part like a man.I am sure we of the Sierra Club, wish them much happiness in their married life; this being one of the romances which has developed from the annual outing.
I hope you are enjoying the best of health,and looking forward to many trips during the coming year,which I hope will be a very pleasant and happy one for you.

Yours sincerely,


San Francisco
