2I have no fear about the triumphant completion of the Silva the booking of these majestic Western Abies that have so long been growing in your heart & head is a glorious job; & in describing them, after you are done with the technical parts do not fail to let your heart go free for a few moments & give them a line or two of hot praise.I have the annoucement of the marriage of Henrietta to Guy Lowell - happy fellow give him my congratulations - and give Canby my hearty regards & compel him to the Alleghany Tree festivalNotwithstanding what you so kindly say I am most immoderately proud in having my name associated with the shining host of American pines amid which my best days have been spent.Ever YoursJohn Muir
