THE CENTURY CO.UNION SQUARE, NEW YORKNovember 17, 1902.John Muir, Esq.,Martinez, California.Dear Mr. Muir:The Atchison, Topeka and Sante Fe Railway people have written us inquiring if they might publish in the form of a pamphlet your article in the November Number on "The Grand Canon of Colorado" They admire it very much and wrote some time ago about it. We suggested that they purchase the magazine entire, but this would cost too much. Do you see any objection to our acceding to their request? It may be that they would pay a charge sufficient to make it an object financially to us both, providing, of course, you see no objection from any other standpoint.In the case we made the pamphlet we should probably publish with it the Maxfield Parrish picture as a frontispiece.Believe me,[illegible]03097
