William and Maymie Kimes Annotation

At the end of the article "A Woman's Trip Through the Tuolumne Canon" by Jennie Ellsworth Price, is Muir's letter: "The Sierra Club is developing some capital mountaineers, and Mrs. Price must be the best. The Tuolumne Canon is perhaps the roughest of all the Sierra streets, and her quiet walk through it was a fine, notable performance. As far as I know, she is the only woman who has traced it through its entire length. The Club should make some sort of trail through this magnificent canon. Simply cutting lanes through the densest of the chaparral tangles would go far to render it accessible. Very Truly yours, John Muir."
