[letterhead]May 9, 1902.My dear Mr. Muir:This note is to break gently to you the serious fact that you have been put into my book of verse, "Songs of the Press." Please to bear up bravely, my dear friend, and read "Muir of the Mountains" without poling or trembling. It was, you know, inevitable. Nobody could have written what you have written without calling down something of that sort. I send you the book to-day.03001
