Melville B. Anderson


[John Muir]


[1]Menlo Park, 9 July, '14Dear Friend,I am wondering how you are? Much better, I hope, than when I saw you. I am thinking of going away and should much like to see you again first. Tell me frankly whether it would be convenient for me to come (I had thought of Saturday, going & returning same day: I suppose there is a week-end reduction of fare on the Santa Fe)?I have a dear and very modest friend, Howard Hale of the English Dep't here, whom05791[2]I should like to bring to see you, if you don't object - He is a dear fellow,- one of your many admirers. Indeed, I had thought of him as a companion on the trip we talked of, having been in the mountains with him more than once. But be frank & don't let us bore you, dear man!Affectionately yours,Melville B AndersonMr John Muir-05791
