[Charles Sprague] Sargent
3Later I happened to notice the dedication & it made my heart jump with joy as no other honor I have received ever did. The Harvard A.M. & Wisconsin University L.L.D. are as nothing to this. So you will know how deep my thanks are. You might have dedicated this grand volume to anyone of a hundred better botanists but to none that loves a pine tree more than Your humble friend & admirerJohn Muir
1898 May 11
