[letterhead]Jan 25 97My dear Mr. MuirYour kind and appreciative note on the Tehipite article is at hand. I am glad you are pleased with it, and am also glad you find it too short rather than too long. I realize with astonishment the remarkable feat of your first trip to Tehipite and back in those days without food. I am sure I never was capable of such a feat even if I could have known the way thoroughly. I should probably have strayed widely from the course. I shall look forward sometime before long to the pleasure of visiting you at Martinez when opportunity offers to a busy man, and will give you due warning of my threatened invasionSincerely yoursJ M Stillman02226
