67Martinez, Nov. 14/99My dear Mr GilderThanks for the rime of the Ancient ice farmer. It is very funny but you could & should write something better in dead glacial earnest.I have not yet began the recollection job. Am busy with forests.I have just received a letter from Johnson proposing a little story book I'd like to try.The Four brook visit still shines in mind.Remember me to Mrs Gilder & the childrenEver Cordially YoursJohn Muir
