[Apr 17, 1909]My dear Mr. Muir:It is impossible to express my appreciation of the gift of the beautiful story of "Stickeen", made doubly valuable by the kind inscription you placed in the front of the book. It was one of the pleasantest surprises which04480 ever came to me. The gift was at a particularly appropriate time - reaching me on my birthday. I shall always feel that I own the story in a peculiar way, having also heard you yourself tell it on the Kern Canon [diacritic] trip.I hope you haven't forgotten your promise to honor us with a visit, while you are in Pasadena. If you are to be here long enough, it would give us the greatest pleasure to see you at our home, when my brother, whom you may remember meeting at Colonel Sellar's home returns from the East, which will be in a few days.As I do not know your present address, I will send this letter in care
