[in margin: 900]
[Aug. 2, 1883]
My Dear Mrs. Muir,
John tells me it is no use and I don’t know but he is right, but how I do wish you would surprise us all by coming down to the Con[illegible] Celebration and if you could bring John Muir and Mrs. Strentzel I have room for all and then little Wanda would feel perfectly at home. If you will say positively that you will come I will see about getting a window somewhere on Kearney or Market St so we can sit and see the procession comfortable – The exercises will
last about three days but I would of course be glad to have you come a day or two earlier and stay as long as you could after – Now if you cannot come or do not care to [deleted: do so] cannot you persuade Mrs. Strentzel to do so – O I should enjoy it so much to have her here to go with us to the “doings” I see by tonight’s paper that Judge Lynch got “stood up” by a highwayman – and glad was I that it turned out as well as it did – Please send me word when John comes down Sunday night if you can and oblige
Yours cordially Mary L. Swett.
