William and Maymie Kimes Annotation

In the column "Gleanings from History," under the heading "With Muir, Thanksgiving, Sixty Years Ago," a letter is quoted in which Muir, with his Scottish humor, writes: "Though I have been very hungry on the mountains a few weeks ago, and have just been making beautiful amends at a regular turkey thank-fest of the old New England type, I must answer your letter, however incapacitated by 'stuffing' for, depend upon it this Turkish method of thanks makes the simplest kind of literary effort hard; one's brains go heavily along the easiest lines, like a laden wagon in a bog....A crust by a brookside out on the mountains with God, is more to me than all, beyond comparison."
