January 4, 1895.Mr. John Muir,Martinez, California.My dear Mr. Muir,I had hoped to have time write you a personal letter before this, but I have been more than overwhelmed with office and home and social affairs, so that I have scarcely had an evening to myself since my returnts; at last I am forced to resort to a dictated letter* and that in cold typewriting, but you will pardon me, I am sure. I have thought of you often, of my delightful visit at your house, and of the hospitality so kindly extended to me by Mrs. Mudr and yourself.Mr. Will H. Drake is still in the vicinity of Pasadena, where he has been doing the missions.Mr. Johnson has been urging me to get the illustrations ready for your first article on Muir Glacier, the manuscript of which has gone back to you for revision, and which I have not seen.One thing I would like very much to have you do if possible, That is, to have a good photograph taken of the excellent painting of Muir Glacier by Thomas Hill - the one01913
