BRIDOMAN, Sec'y and Treas,"Standard Union" Building,Brooklyn-New York.New York. July 20, 1909.Dear Mr, President:A recent note from Lieut. Ernest H. Shackleton, the Antarctic explorer, intimating his presence in America in March, prompts me to "sound" you upon an American Alpine Club dinner to him as guest of honor. I am aware that this may conflict with your obligation, the performance of which is eagerly awaited, to be present at the annual American Alpine dinner in Boston this year, in connection with the see sion of the A.A. A. S., and if therefore, the Shacleton idea does not fall easily within your personal convenience or official judgment, I trust that you will not hesitate to tell me do at once. Of course, you will readily understand that thic note is altogether personal and confidential, and takes time by so long a forelock, that we may be perfectly frank and open about the matter. I am very sure that a cordial and practical unanimous welcome by the members of the Alpine Club awaits you, and trust that nothing may disappoint our expectations. With best regards,Yours very truly,[illegible]John Muir, Esq.,President American Alpine Club,Martinez, California.04546
