Stockton, Feby. 9 - 1903221 E. Acacia St.Mr. John MuirMartinez, Calif.Dear Sir and Friend:I send you by separate package another copy of the picture I made of you. It is the very best I have been able to get from the negative, which has since been "tinkered" and spoiled.I hope I may have your permission to try again some time.My land application will be approved this month so the Surveyor General writes me and I will soon own a part of the Sierras myself. I hope to build a cabin on it this summer where I can retire when I periodically grow sick of civilization.Yours sincerelyEdward Hughes.03161
