[Page 3] Fine preaching isn’t it? Your article will be first rate I have no doubt, though the introduction will have to be cut off mostly. It reads too much like the preface of some Professors big book strike right out with the midst of your pictures and let the boundaries take care of themselves. Remember me to the Doctor. Ever yrs cordially J Muir Have not yet seen your last M.S.S.
