E. The Outlook Company287 Fourth AvenueNew YorkDecember 7, 1904.My dear Mr. Muir:The Outlook publishes in the early summer of each year what we call a Recreation Number, the object of it being to inspire our readers to out-of-door life, and to give them some guidance and instruction how to get that out-of-door life in the best way and with the best advantage. I read your "Our National Parks" last spring, in connection with a call - it was not enough to be entitled a visit - at the Yosemite Valley. It made me long for the privilege which you offered Ralph Waldo Emerson and he declined, but which I fear I shall never have, of spending at least a few hours in the woods with you. I should want it to be weeks.That is impossible; but I hope it may not be impossible for you to comply with the request of this note, and03476
