Stockton Nov 18-1903 My dear Mrs Muir, I have been trying my best to come down and see you regarding the planting about the station building; but my time has been so taken lately that it has proven impossible for me to do so. I am going into Mr Muir’s Mountains of Light in a few days up onto the great silence of the snow. And I assure it will be full of inspiration to me to get away from the rumble of hurrying trains for a little while. I am going to take Mr Muir with me as my guide. When I return I shall only be too glad to come and see you. Perhaps I then can tell you a little of what I saw. Mrs Reimers brought me the glad tidings you had received from Mr Muir. The day with you was of great delight told to her and very girls. She is in love with you and I am glad that she is. She is longing to see you again. Perhaps some day we may have the great pleasure of seeing both you and your daughters in our home. I dare hardly hope to ever bring Mr Muir here. For him the world is so full of calls, and ever day pregnant with importance. What will he not have to tell when he returns! Best greeting to you and your from mine and Yours my sincerely. Johannes Reimers
