John Muir


Overland (California) Office Oct. 21st ‘82

Mr John Muir,

I want very much to talk with you about it, and as I understand you do not come to San Francisco, I will so far intrude on you as to come to Martinez, next Monday, the 23d. I enclose this in a note of introduction from Mr Bartlett.

station Monday morning on the train leaving San Francisco at 9:40.
