Los Angeles. Cal., March 14, 1911.325 West Adams Street.Charles F. Lummis, Secretary,Archaeological Institute of Americaand the Southwest Society Thereof,200 East Avenue 43,Los Angeles, Cal.Dear Mr. Lummis:In reply to your letter of January 30th, you perhaps remember that years ago I told you I could not spare the time to write postal orders for the twenty or forty societies to which I belonged and at that time I sent you a lump sum and requested that my name be stricken off the list of members of those societies of which you were secretary, the Land-marks Club, Sequoia Club, and Archaeological Institute. It seems that no attention has been paid to my request.Now, here are ten dollars, and as I am not only too busy to attend to writing so many money orders, but am likely to be away from home in the East or in South America for some time to come, you will therefore kindly strike my name off your membership lists, while with all good wishes for the societies and for yourself, I am, Faithfully yours,John Muir
