[Louie Strentzel] Muir
Berkeley, April 19th
Dear Mrs. Muir,
I received your kind note this evening. I accept with pleasure. About the Scotland trip, I think it a fine idea and especially for Mr. Muir. If he dont go he will be sure to go to that horrid
Alaska, and perhaps climb that strap big mountain, that has never been climbed and you know how daring he is. As for Mr. Keith, I am sure it will do him good, and increase his reputation as it will that of Mr. Muir. Give my love to your mother, and we shall have a fine walk, tell Wanda and Helen.
M. McH. Keith
P.S. Dear Mr. Muir How old is Johnnie? it has been a source of great study with me & I am interested to know how many decades he is older than
Mrs. Keith suggests that we walk thro Scotland in Kilts & I [add?] on stilts, with R[illegible] on stilts, I rather like the idea
