F. LUMMIS"A magazine wholly unlike any other published anywhere. . . . The best there is in periodical literature on the Pacific Coast. . . . Ability and individuality powerful enough and original enough to give distinction to any periodical.... A voice listened to with respect and interest in all parts of the country."-The Dial."Its lively independence and its genuine learning. ... A steady evenness of worth and interest." -The Nation.Editor's OfficeLos Angeles, Cal April 2nd 1903.Dear Mr. Muir:Now see here, don't you think of trusting yourself among the timorous foreigners, unless you come by this way and stop a day or two to get fortified-and also to fortify us. Just think how we should feel if they should eat you, abroad, and we had not seen you for a long time!Turbese and everyone of us want to welcome you here. The longer the better; but even a little is better than nothing, and as this is on the transcontinental line of travel, I can't see that you have any decent or moral excuse for passing us by on the other side.The other matter seems to be mutual.
