[Robert Underwood] Johnson
[illegible]10 Martinez Oct 24, 1891My dear Mr Johnson.I am pegging away at Alaska. I am trying to make a lot of telling pictures of the Glaciers, forests Indians etc together with bits of adventure narritve etc. It is not easy to write to order, & no doubt I will write much that you don’t want But you can take what you do want & leave the balance. I send you herewith a lot of photographs & in a few days will send copies of some of the best of my sketches taken where camera have not yet reached. Also a map of the Mt. Glacier. I have been sinfully busy of late or the M. S would be already in your hands. I congratulate you most heartily on your copyright honors. You deserved them all & more.Ever Cordially yoursJohn Muir
1891 Oct 24
