& offered my own terms within reason (safe enough in dealing with Scotch)Now there; Pax vobis. Surely you dont think I tackled these tough forest things for money! Your jumping up with an armful of unworthy motives in this matter is the first immorality I have seen in you.One book the Century Co. can brag on - the dictionary. The grandest book of the age. In my opinion a Kingly Sequoia. I'm glad you are watching forest affairs, they look gloomy to me but we must keep pegging away as we can & pray for a better Sec. of Interior & better senators.I dont know when I'll start for Klondike. Certainly not before June or July if I start at all. Come & go with me. If You'll go I'll go.Ever Yours TrulyJohn Muir
