[Dec 1902?][1][letterhead]My Dear Mr. Muir.I had read certain commendatory notices of your new book, & was thinking to go to Chicago for a copy, when I found my wish met by your thoughtful kindness. I give you hearty thank for the work which now. (to [illegible] four notices at "H[illegible]sea Biglow") on the [illegible] shelf with my "Mountains of California" I can let be upset". Some of the papers - articles rather which re-appear in this volume I had read in the "Atlantic Magazine", but not all. They interest me as few novels do. I seem to be with you as I read your pages. It is a rare pen that you handle.03108
