[Katharine Merrill Graydon]
[Original letter returned to Miss Katharine M. Graydon]
Martinez, Oct. 8. 1894.
My dear despot:
Don't make any definite arrangements either for my dinner or bed next Saturday, as I don't know whether I can be in time for your early dinner or whether I may not sleep elsewhere.
And now that I am fairly in for the crazy show you may invite as many guests as you like from 10 to 1000. I can't imagine what makes me so helpless in your hands. You and Janet Moores can make .me do anything, and strange to say you require just what above all others I most devoutly shrink from. Strange that such a witch should be all these enchanting years undouble.
Ever your much-enduring man,
J. M.[Envelope addressed Miss Katharine Graydon, 2530 College Avenue, Berkeley, Cal.]
