Dear Mr. Muir:
No one was ever more delighted at receiving a remembrance than I was when I found your promised book among my mail one morning just before Christmas. Thank you. And I do not believe that anyone ever enjoyed a talk with you more than I did, not even Professor Sargent himself.
You made me again proud of being a Scotchwoman, but of that I am proud every day. How I should delight in seeing you again. I hope I shall.
Mr. Munroe wishes to be remembered most kindly as I do, and believe me, John Muir,
Your sincere friend and admirer,
Mary Barr Munroe.
