F. B[ailey] Millard
4I hope you liked the Markham book. You didn't say that you received it. My best friend, Charles Ferguson, [illegible] of "the Religion of Democracy," who preaches the doctrine of out-of-doors, wrote me the other day of the Markham book, saying "It will do much to abate the world - nuisance of intellectual cleverness and moral meanness." So good this seemed to me that I quote it for you. In truth it seems to the subscriber that intellectual cleverness, as we see it in print and speech to-day is a very nuisance, needing sorely to be abated. Do you know what I like best in "National Parks?" Yellowstone [illegible], that fine touch on the sugar pine, the mountain fires and the meeting with Emerson.Yours as ever,F. B. Millard.
