[Robert Underwood] Johnson
38Martinez, Feb. 23, 1895My dear Mr Johnson,I send you today the Alaska trip by registered mail. I think it reads pretty well though its tail is slightly scrawny after pulling out so many of its plumes for the Glacier Bay article. There is a good deal in it & it cannot I think fail to interest tourists.I had a letter the other day from Sir Joseph Hooker saying he had just finished reading the last page of my book & that he didn't know when he had ever read anything that gave him so much pleasure & instruction etc. & asks whether I am going to give a book on Alaska I shall now tackle the dog & the adventure.Ever Cordially yoursJohn MuirBancroft Library
