John Muir


[1]1715 La Loma Ave, BerkeleyFeb 26 -14.Dear Mr Muir,-I am ashamed to think that we have not written to tell you how much we enjoyed our visit with you. I left it to Mr F[illegible]ies to do, & he has been so driven with work that he has neglected it. And now we have your kind note to remind us. I am not going to wait for my husband to answer. He is at his office all day busy with [affairs?] & too tired when he comes home to let his friends know that he cares for them05715

[2]It is so good of you to want us to come again. We shall be delighted to do so. Possibly this, or some other Sunday if the weather is good. We will of course come in tramping suit & with luncheon on [our backs?], or perhaps we may tempt you to break bread with us on the hillside. We try to spend our Sundays among God's out of doors as much as possible.With sincere appreciation & kindest regards from us all, yours faithfullyAnna E[rik?].. B. Fries.
