[First draft of letter, in note-book #59] (62)Martinez, Oct. 21, 1900.My dear Mr. Slifer:The birch specimens from Cook Inlet came a week or two ago. The bark is a fine large piece, and the leaves and flowers, which l sent to Prof. Sargent for the Arnold Arboretum, are just what were wanted. I am very much obliged to you, and Prof. Sargent will be delighted, it is so hard to get such specimens in season from those remote places.I congratulate you on your restoration to health, your experiences in the Northland, and on your success in making a way into the life work you have chosen.And now, with best wishes,Very truly yours,John Muir02890
