[Walter H.] Page
2company did not do half as well by me & "the mountains" as I think the should. & I'm not bound to give them this or any other book I may write on their own terms. 2 The California Tree & shrub book was suggested by Merriam last summer, but I have already written so fully on forest trees & their underbrush I'm not sure that I can make another book about them Possibly a handy volume with short telling descriptions & illustrations of each species enabling the ordinary observer to know them at sight might be welcomed. This if undertaken will probably be done season after next, & you shall have the first sight of it. 3 Next should come a Mountaineering book - all about walking, climbing & camping, with a lot of illustrative excursions. 4 Alaska,- glaciers, forests, mt'ns travels etc.02937
