[4]printed with God in a thousand forms Ever your friend John Muir [1] Yosemite Val' Feb 20Dear Stoddard, I have been claiming you for a friend for a long time although a few miles of air has separated us, Mrs Carr has mirrored you up here many times & our mutual friend Mrs Hutchings has said many a loving word for you, & last spring Mr Emerson asked me many questions concerning you & spoke of verses you had sent him, in a way that made me hope that you had a song to sing grander than any you have yet conceived. In this way I have learned to know you, & I am cordially glad to feel that you are coming nearer
