ARNOLD ARBORETUM. 2 of some of these noble trees?I have made a contract with Houghton, Mifflin & Company for The new tree book and Faxon has been hard at work on the illustrations for the last three months. It will take him, I suppose, a couple of years to make the six hundred drawings. They are going to be beauties and I hope the book will prove useful. I have got lots of other schemes on hand but [illegible] sadly lacking in time and strength to do all I ought to accomplish during the next ten years.Write often to your faithful friend,[illegible]John Muir, Esq.Martinez, Cal.[02696]
