Louie Strentzel Muir
San Francisco Sept [September] 17, 1902 My dear [Mrs.] Muir Thanks for your cordial letter received last [ev] [evening]. I am [sincerely] sorry not to visit Martinez but [we] are busy packing & getting ready for a start eastward [tomorrow] at 10am so you will have to meet us at 115 Elm St. [Northampton] Mass [Massachusetts] before [Miss] Muir leaves the college! [We] must be content not to return to “the mountains & the parks.” Left only partly read when [we] left home June 23. Aside from the solid facts 2 [We] are charmed with their poetic & exquisite setting & the attractive style in which the book is written. In your next [we] shall look for your experiences this summer [amoung] the mountains & canyons of which [we] have had a hint in the daily papers. Regretting that I have not the time to [grasp] [you] [hand] today & hoping to greet you in [Northampton] at a not far away date I am. Sincerely yours, S.E. Bridgman [Sidney Edwin Bridgman]
