John Muir



Sept. 26, '94

Dear Mr Muir,

I am sorry that this notice goes out so late but I hope that it will reach you in time to bring you to the city. I am quite desirous of settling the thing up as far as we may at this meeting. You are always so cordial & ready to act that I shall miss you if you are not present. In a previous letter you said that you would like a couple of lots on the lake front for Mrs Muir & and that beyond that you didn't care what you had. That you would take what is left. Now I am not quite certain just what you mean. Do you wish to take a third or a fourth or a fifth of the whole plot in case you may? I shall be quite glad


if you do for I dont care whether we run up to a large number or not. We shall wish to keep the 45 acres as free from the axe or the grubbing hoe as we can. But come up if you can.

Yrs truly

W. T. Reid
