John Muir


[letterhead]August 18th, 1912My dear Mr. Muir:I gave the letter to my sister-in-law, my brother having gone camping with William, and of course, she was very pleased to hear from you, and gave me the pleasure of reading their letter from you as well as my own. There was no clipping however, although you spoke as though one had been enclosed. I judged it to have been about Dr. Eliot.05255

They have told me what a fine trip you all had, and what a joy it was to have you with them. I had asked my sister-in-law not to invite me to go with them as I had thought they would for I must do some work I had planned. But they had not expected to have room for me coming home anyway. When I knew you were going too, I was just ready to give up my work and go with them, coming back by train if necessary.Hoping we shall have you back in Pasadena soon, and that you will really caome to stay in Altadena, as you said,With affectionate regard,Most sincerely your friendMary Frances Kellogg
