Millicent Shin [Editor Overland]
Martinez April 18. 1883.Dear Miss [Shin?]I am lost & choked in agricultural needs & am almost beyond the memory even of literary work so that much as I should like to give you the article you want I am not able or nearly able to do so. Work is coming upon me from near & far & at present I cannot see how I am to escape its degrading [illegible] effects. Get some one to write an article on the [vice?] of over-industry, it is greatly needed in these times of horticultural storms. Ever yrs truly John Muir.[on envelope: Monthly Overland 120 [illegible]Miss Millicent [Shinn?], 408 California St. San Francisco.]
