J. B. Lippincott
[First draft of letter,in note-book][January, 1903]Mr.J.B.Lippincott,408 Byrne Building,Los Angeles, Cal.My dear Sir:I am heartily in sympathy with the Woman's Clubs in the work they are doing for right forestry, and am willing to assist in every way I can. But I am already overloaded with work which I am trying to get off my hands before setting out in the spring on a long forest ramble. I am no lecturer anyhow, and could say nothing essentially new on forest affairs if I should speak till doom's day.With thanks to the Friday Morning Club and to yourself for the honor of this invitation, I remain,Faithfully yours,[John Muir]
