jamaica Plain,Mass.,January...13.....1899Dear Muir:Redwood and Sugar Pine photographs--how are these to be had for enlargement into transparencies for the Museum in New York where these two friends of yours ought to appear to the best advantage? Do not some of The:young men in your Sierra Club take good photographs of trees or forest scenes? It would be practically impossible to get a photograph of either an isolated Sugar Pine or Redwood that would do justice to these trees.Possibly somebody has taken a distant view of a grove of Sugar Pines or a nearby view of one of the trunks.In the case of the Redwood we shall have to be contented, I suppose,with [illegible] view taken in the forest showing several stems. I do not know if such photographs exist, or,if they do not, how to get them.Faithfully yours,C.S.[illegble]John Muir, Esq.MartInez, Cal.
