Mr John Muir,

My dear Sir:

Our Literary Institute have today voted to invite you to open our course of lectures on Jan. 18. We are late in beginning this year [illegible] to my absence. I suppose; but we want to start in after the holidays, & of course want you to interpret some of your seeings to us. I want to invite you to stop with us, & to bring Mrs. Muir with you. Mrs. Dwinell will be very glad to make her acquaintance. Come & bring her. [in margin: 358] With cordial regards for her & Mrs & Dr Strentzel, I remain

Sincerely yours J.E. Dwinell
