Martinez, July 19, 1913

Dear Miss Kellogg:

I think I promised autographed copies of my last book to yourself and Mrs. William and her skylark sister. The Hetch Hetchy fight is on again and I’ve been so stupidly busy I can’t tell whither the books have been sent or not.

How is your little book coming on. It is sure to be published tho’ change may be required as to its scope etc.

I suppose you, like all good m’tneers, are well up in the skylands.

Hope to hear from you and all your friends – Kelloggs and Scripps I mean. I am with all good wishes faithfully yours.

John Muir
