[Loulu Perry] Osborn
(December 1913)Dear Mrs Osborn; here I think are the verses you wish me to write out and which I often quoted at blessed Castle Rock."Life is too short to wasteIn critic peep or cynic bark,Quarrel or reprimand:Twill soon be dark;Up! Mind thine own aim, and God speed the mark!"From Ralph Waldo Emerson's poem entitled "To J. W." The first line is "Set not thy foot on qraves"-Ever affectionately yoursJohn MuirCalifornia.December1913-05620
