I write you from NY asking you to be the chief figure in a box with Childs Dayton and self on the eve of the 24th inst at the opening of my play at the Walnut St. Theatre. I have not heard from you. My dear friend are you not well enough to come? Longfellow was ith​ me at Boston. Come and we will pet you to death. We all want so much to see you.

Yours Joaquin Miller  loc.03141.002.jpg  loc.03141.003.jpg  loc.03141.004.jpg from Joaquin Miller Dec '77
