50/ Six/ Martinez, Cal. Jan. 10, 1902Big thanks my dear Page for your great letter. The strength & shove & hearty reinging inspiration of it is enough to make the very trees & rocks write. The Park book, the publishers tell me is successful. To you & Sargent it owes its existence; for before I got your urgent & encouraging letters I never dreamed of writing such a book. As to plans for others i am now at work on 1 a small one "Yosemite I other Yosemites" which Johnson has been trying to get me to write a long time & which I hope to get off my hands this year. I'll first offer it to the Century Co. hoping they will bring it out in good shape, give it a good push toward readers & offer fair compensation. Johnson is all right, a very friend of mine, but his 02937
