327 S. Alvarado St.Los AngelesMarch 18 1911Dear Mr. MuirWhen Dr. Davidson & I were staying at Dunbar Manse last summer I had the pleasure of meeting Mrs. & Miss Lunam who were very anxious I should see you when you came again to Los Angeles & tell you of their welfare.I would04978
feel very pleased & honoured if you would come over some day & have lunch with my husband & me during your stay here. We seem to know you already through having your photograph taken last year with Mr. Carnegie and my Brother-in-law & as Dunbar Manse is the home of my sister, it does seem as if we ought to knoweach other. At the same time I hesitate to ask you to add to your numberless friends when you have come here to rest. If you do not feel equal to coming over here to see us perhaps you would telephone.With kind regardsBelieve meYours very trulyHelen F. Davidson
