[letterhead]Dec 18, 1893.My dear Mr Muir:I am only now really settled down at home for a stay of a few weeks. I wanted to have sent to you long ago the book I mail now and which you kindly [illegible]ented to accept from me — Laurier's poems. There are in Laurier such wonderful odors of pine, and hay, and salt sands and cedar, and corn, and such whisperings of Eolian stra[illegible]es and every out-door sound - I think you would have had great joy in one another's personal acquaintance. And this makes me think how much I have in yours. Your face and voice, your true, rich words, are close to my senses now as I write, and I cry hungrily for more. The snow is on us everywhere now,


Northampton, Mass.
