John Muir



June 5, 1893.

Dear Muir;

I have a most cordial note from my friend Mrs. Osborn asking us to lunch tomorrow at her house [Castle Rock?] opposite West Point and saying that she will send her carriage for us to the landing to meet the Albany [Day?] boat. Assuming that this meets your approval, I will call for you tomorrow morning at 8:30 o’clock to go to the boat Be ready at that time.

Will you lunch with me at the Players on Wednesday at 1:30? I wish to ask Judge Howland and Mr. Barney to meet you then and I await the certainty that you can come before sending them word. So please let me know by [bearer?]. I am sorry to say that it was impossible to get down to see you yesterday. It was however a good day not to tramp.

Yours ever

R. U. Johnson
